15 Jun The Importance of Hiring an Expert When Filing for Trademark Protection
Often small businesses get started without much capital. This may lead to budget concerns and perhaps filing trademarks and handling other intellectual property issues independently. It’s only when these attempts go awry that business owners realize it is a better investment to consult with an expert.
I received a call from a company recently that filed their own trademark application. They received a rejection and are asking me to step in and help them obtain the proper registration. Many people and companies file on their own and do so incorrectly. Sometimes it can be fixed, other times a new application must be filed and additional filing fees are required in order to correct the defects. In the case of this company, they received an OFFICE ACTION (OFFICIAL LETTER) ABOUT APPLICANT’S TRADEMARK APPLICATION and did not know how to properly respond. An attorney knows how to respond and obtain the broadest protection for the applicant. This investment in the future of your company will save you time and money in the long run.
