What are the benefits of using an attorney to register my trademark?

The trademark registration process is more than simply completing and filing a form with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).  It is a formal and detailed process with several stages. Requests from the USPTO for amendment or additional information are not uncommon. If the USPTO identifies a reason for refusing your registration, you may not be able to overcome the obstacle.

Getting assistance from a qualified lawyer can make a significant difference in the trademark registration process and outcome. Representation by an experienced trademark attorney like Sarah Walkington can improve your chances of successful registration. The process is also likely to go more efficiently, because all essential details are properly addressed at the outset.
