US Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) regulations specify that only an attorney who is an active member in good standing of the bar of the highest court of any U.S. state or territory, a US-licensed trademark attorney, can represent you in a trademark application, registration, or TTAB proceeding at the USPTO.
US Trademark Attorney Eric Eagle Hartmans is a US-licensed counsel qualified to represent non-US trademark owners who wish to apply for US trademark registration or who need to respond to an Office Action for a WIPO trademark application.
YES. Our attorneys are licensed and in good standing with the State Bar of California.
After a trademark application is filed, a USPTO trademark attorney examins it to determine if it meets certain criteria. The application can be drafted in a way to maximize the chances of being approved by the USPTO.
If approved, the application is then published online and third-parties have an opportunity to object to the trademark’s registration. If no objection is filed, or if the objection is not sustained, then a trademark registration certificate is issued by the USPTO and mailed to the attorney, which is forwarded to the client with future deadlines and information regarding enforcement.
US trademark filing fees depend on 1) the number of classes applied for and 2) whether the USPTO has pre-approved your goods and services. To learn more about the classification of goods and services, read our blog post on trademark classes.
A USPTO trademark registration is required for Amazon Brand Registry. To learn more about the requirements for the Amazon Brand Registry, read our blog post on the Amazon Brand Registry.
It typically takes a minimum of 7 months for a trademark application to mature into a registration, but it may take 24 months or more.
