Trademark Applications

We offer cost-effective trademark applications with a comprehensive search to give you the proper advice about your trademark rights. After doing a comprehensive trademark search, the team at Verna Law, P.C. can apply for your trademark at the United States Patent and Trademark Office until it registered. A trademark owner can save time, expense, and effort by adopting an inherently distinctive mark and ensuring it is registered on the Principal Register with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Trademark registration is essential for acquiring strong legal rights, being able to efficiently enforce one’s trademark rights, and deterring others from infringing on your legal rights. If a trademark owner decides not to register its mark, and wants to enforce its rights, this becomes challenging. This challenge will also be encountered if a trademark is only registered on the Supplemental Register of the Trademark Office and not the Principal Register. The reasons why a trademark owner can benefit from registration are due to the presumptions that attach under the Lanham Act.Verna Law, P.C. also has experience at the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board should the need to oppose or cancel any other trademarks.  Learn More.
