Want to protect your business name?

The best way to protect your business name is with a federal trademark registration. In addition to being able to use the ® trademark symbol, a federal trademark registration:

How to trademark your name and get the ® trademark symbol

1

Determine whether your trademark can be registered (some can't).

2

Perform a trademark search to check the availability of your name.

3

Classify your goods and services and prepare your trademark application.

4

File your trademark registration with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

5

Respond to any objections from the USPTO.

6

Pay government trademark maintenance fees to maintain your trademark with the USPTO.

Although these steps seem simple, filing a trademark registration is a complex process involving many legal and business considerations. That's why the USPTO recommends hiring an attorney to guide you through the process.

Filing your trademark with Trust Tree

When you choose Trust Tree, an experienced attorney will develop a trademark strategy that fits your business goals and budget. Your attorney will evaluate your business name, search its availability and even help you come up with a name if you're having trouble. When it comes time to file, your attorney prepares your application, files it, and monitors your application after it's filed. If the USPTO objects to your application, your attorney will counsel you on your options and can respond on your behalf. Once your trademark registers, we keep track of when your maintenance fees are due. We can also monitor the USPTO database and let you know if someone tries to file a similar trademark. And, if anyone tries to infringe your trademark, the experienced litigators at Trust Tree can help you resolve the dispute.
