A trademark is a word, phrase, logo, or design that serves as a source identifier and helps consumers identify and differentiate your brand from competitors. Possessing a federally registered trademark is one of the most effective ways to protect your brand. The trademark attorneys at Bruno Law file federal trademark applications with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and counsel clients on the best way to ensure that their brand is fully protected on a national level.
Our attorneys will complete each step of the trademark application process for you and will advise you on key issues, such as whether your mark is strong enough to qualify for trademark protection, which class of goods/services your mark should be registered under, and how to best enforce your trademark rights after your registration issues. If any issues arise during the application process, including questions and/or refusals from the examining attorney at the USPTO, we will advocate on your behalf and respond to any Office Action notices. Ultimately, if your mark is approved by the USPTO and successfully registers on the Principal Trademark Register, you will then possess the exclusive right to use that mark in connection with your designated class of goods/services throughout the country.
In addition to filing trademark applications, our attorneys also represent clients in trademark infringement disputes in federal court, as well as trademark appeals, opposition proceedings, and cancellation proceedings in front of the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB).
