Our Miami based trademark lawyers can help you before, during, and after the trademark application process. We can help you police and enforce any trademark registration that may issue from the trademark application process.
Our trademark lawyers can help you avoid costly legal problems by conducting comprehensive trademark searches prior to your filing of any trademark application.
Note, we recommend you perform a comprehensive trademark search prior to filing for a trademark, for there may be trademark owners who may have protected legal rights in trademarks similar to yours that are not federally registered. If a trademark owner predates your use of your trademark in the United States, for similar products, he may be deemed to be the senior user of the mark and thereby prevent you from using your mark in US Commerce.
Trademarks that are not federally registered will not appear in the USPTO’s Trademark Electronic Search System (TESS) database, yet they may prevent the use of your mark.
As trademark lawyers, we can help you during the application process, for we can help you determine the best way to describe your goods and services and prepare responses to refusals to register that an examining attorney may issue. Additionally, as Florida licensed attorneys, we can also assist you in the policing and enforcing of your trademark rights before the state and federal courts of Florida.
The USPTO only registers your trademarks. You, as the trademark owner, are responsible for any enforcement or policing of your trademark.
