Trademarks

Protect Your Brand

 
 

What is a Trademark?

 

A trademark is the exclusive right to use your brand...aka your company name + logo.

You're investing time + money into your brand. Without a trademark, your competitors can copy your brand, confuse your customers, and profit from your hard work.

A trademark protects you by ensuring that you are the only one who can use your brand.

 

The Trademark Process

 

Step 1

Trademark Search

We start with a trademark search to ensure your name is available and has a good chance of success.

Step 2

Trademark Application

The trademark application is notoriously difficult. We can create and file your application so it's more likely to be approved.

Step 3
