Protecting your brand is critical to growing your business and controlling your professional reputation. Registering trademarks can be an important part of that process.

The best way to increase your chances of a smooth and successful trademark filing is to work with an experienced trademark attorney.

Yaser Masood Law PLLC puts its experience to work managing the complexities of trademark registration, so you can focus on running your business.

The Trademark Application Process

Before Filing a Trademark Application

You may have seen “quick” registration processes offered online, but the truth is that a successful trademark application requires groundwork. Before you file for trademark registration, your attorney will:

  • Help assess whether your mark is eligible for trademark protection
  • Determine the filing basis for your application
  • Conduct a trademark clearance search or guide you through the process
  • Help choose an appropriate specimen for submission with your application
  • Drafting a complete and accurate application for you

Investing in this research, analysis, and careful assembly of your application can mean the difference between securing your trademark and receiving a denial.

During the Trademark Application and Review Process

When your application and supporting materials are submitted, the process isn’t necessarily over. The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) may have questions or request additional information in considering your trademark. Others will have the opportunity to object to your trademark registration. And, if you have filed on an “intended use” basis, your attorney can advise you on how to establish usage so you can move on to the next step.

Missteps in responding to the USPTO or fighting a challenge to your trademark registration can derail the process. An experienced trademark lawyer like Yaser Masood can help you avoid those missteps and keep your application on track.

Yaser’s combined trademark and litigation experience makes him a powerful ally if your trademark is challenged or denied.

After a Trademark Decision

If your trademark is denied, you can make a request for reconsideration or file an appeal to the Trademark Trial & Appeal Board (TTAB). In certain cases, you may also have the option of submitting a Petition to the Director. Your trademark attorney is the best source of guidance about which option is most appropriate in your circumstances.

What you may not realize is that if your trademark application is granted, you still have work to do. Trademarks require maintenance, and you can lose a trademark if you fail to actively enforce it. Your trademark lawyer can advise you on how to protect and maintain your trademark after approval.

Registration of Foreign Trademarks

The process for registering existing foreign trademarks in the United States is somewhat different from the process for establishing a new mark in the U.S. In addition, foreign registrants are required to work with a U.S.-licensed attorney in their trademark applications.

Your Business Deserves a Dedicated Trademark Attorney

Having the right advocate at your side can make all the difference. And, the sooner you get guidance and representation from an experienced trademark lawyer, the better your attorney’s opportunity to fully protect your rights and manage your application effectively.
