Why Use A Chicago Trademark Attorney to Register Your Trademarks?

There are two major benefits to using a Chicago trademark attorney to file your federal trademark application: (1) saving time, and (2) saving money. The federal trademark registration process on the surface may seem fairly straightforward but more often than not it is complex, time consuming, and riddled with areas to potentially make significant, costly mistakes. The trademark registration process involves multiple steps, each with its own timeline and requirements:

  • complete and file initial application,
  • USPTO examining attorney evaluates the application,
  • a potential non-final refusal, followed by a required response,
  • a potential final refusal, followed by a required response or appeal,
  • the publication of the trademark for an opposition period of 30 days,
  • if the application is based on an intent to use, the subsequent filing of a statement of use or a time extension.

If you have a federal trademark matter, please send our Chicago trademark attorneys an email or fill-out our online trademark registration form.
