San Francisco Trademark Attorney Services 

If you’re a San Francisco business owner, you face fierce local competition every day. This is why it’s so important to take the necessary measures to safeguard the mark that represents your brand from theft, misuse, and misappropriation. If you fail to register your trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, your mark will be left vulnerable to those who seek to make a profit off the brand you worked so hard to establish. After spending months or years building your business, it is imperative to shield the mark by which consumers recognize its good will.

Trademark Application and Registration Services for San Francisco Businesses

The importance of registering your company’s trademark with the USPTO cannot be emphasized enough. Almost anything that makes your brand stand out can be trademarked, from your slogan, the name of a product, a symbol, design, or the name of your business. However, it’s critical to understand that there are very strict criteria in place when it comes to filing your trademark application — if there are any mistakes, your registration could be delayed or ultimately denied. Typically, your mark must be used in connection with goods or services before it can be registered. But the USPTO also allows entrepreneurs to file an Intent to Use application to serve as a placeholder until the mark is used in commerce. Our skilled San Francisco trademark attorneys will work with you to determine the best course of action to register your mark as early as possible. The Trademark Lawyer Law Firm has counseled thousands of business owners over the last decade on trademark matters and helped them successfully navigate the trademark registration process. From conducting an initial clearance search to completing the application and responding to any office actions, we are committed to finding efficient and effective solutions for our clients.

Protecting Your Trademark in Litigation

Regardless of whether you’ve taken every possible measure to protect your mark, trademark disputes can sometimes be unavoidable. Issues can arise as a result of intentional or inadvertent infringement, dilution, counterfeiting, unfair competition, use without permission, or due to the likelihood of confusion with another mark. In these cases, it is best to have an attorney by your side to negotiate a favorable outcome on your behalf — and advocate for your ownership rights in the courtroom. In the event your trademark is in jeopardy, your business and bottom line are also threatened. If you discover another company has been misusing your mark or is wrongfully misleading consumers into believing your business is associated with the products it manufacturers, it’s essential to defend your brand. At the Trademark Lawyer Law Firm, we fight to protect our clients’ trademarks in litigation and work diligently to secure the most favorable outcome in every case.
