The Biggest Takeaways

  1. The trademark application is “deceptively simple” and there are many places where a layperson can fumble the ball…
  2. If you mess up your application, not only are you putting your intellectual property at risk, but you are also risking a lot of wasted time and money if you handle it incorrectly.
  3. A good trademark lawyer will get your application filed quickly for a reasonable investment. They will do a comprehensive search, provide a legal opinion, charge an all-encompassing flat fee and will guarantee their work.
