  • I dealt with Brett S throughout the entire trademark process. He is knowledgeable , efficient , and well versed in the trials and tribulations of wading through the trademark process. In a [previous career, I used the services of a Manhattan Firm to handle all of my trademark requirements. It was quite expensive . This effort was concise, to the point and extremely affordable. I will not hesitate to use their services again. I highly recommend them to you. i know you will be as satisfied as i am

    The Trademark Company provides a valuable service at a fair price. The representative I worked with (Jessica) made the process easy for me. Reaching her over the phone or email was also very easy; she was very pleasant, professional, and super responsive. I was up against a very tight deadline, and they got the needed work done on time.
    Given my busy schedule, I appreciated the Trademark Company handling two separate transaction with the PTO, saving me hours of research and work to pull everything together!

    Our trademark came up for renewal recently and the process was super easy and quick. Barely an inconvenience. I'm happy to have this off my plate for another 5 years. Communication was thorough and effective. I felt comfortable and assured throughout.

  • My interaction with Pat. D was professional excellence. From the point of the main inquiry all the way to the conclusion of paying our government fees, he was extremely attentive to the agency's needs and what we were trying to accomplish. I have no reservations about referring Pat to anyone who needs the services that The Trademark Company provides. Thank you Pat for your outstanding service!

    Being a small business owner there are a lot of things that you do not know. Working with The Trademark Company has helped me navigate a process that is so foreign to me and lots of nuances. They have freed up my time to focus on my business while they handle the paperwork with getting important trademarks filed. Kyle is beyond responsive and patient with all my questions. I am happy I found them and highly recommend them for all businesses.

    I've enjoyed working with this company and our representative, Brian. I had a ton of questions and spent lots of his time on the phone over several days.

    Filling under the correct classes is critical to the future growth of our company. I walked Brian through our business plan and he was able to provide his professional experience to help build a filing plan. The research The Trademark Company had completed is excellent insight into other trademarks similar to ours.

    The price we paid for this service was of great value to us in both time and expertise, and I would just this company again.

    Had a nice experience with The Trademark Company. Originally was going with their Standard Package. After I researched it thought the Platinum was too good to pass up. Very easy as well.

    Man these folks make it easy. Had never applied for a trademark. Went through their system. After they called and confirmed a few things it was filed that same day.

Frequently asked questions

It depends. If your trademark is very similar (e.g., NIKE vs. NIKEE) when used with similar goods (e.g., both used for shoes) then probably not. 

In general, it’s a sliding scale. The more similar the trademarks are as well as how similar the goods are services are the more likely your trademark will be rejected. Alternatively, if they are not that similar or the goods or services are not similar you can probably get it registered.

Most people start with their company name such as NIKE, product lines like AIR JORDAN or TIGER WOODS, and even their logos such as Nike’s famous swoosh design and tag lines or slogans such as JUST DO IT. In short, the more you register the more you protect! 

A Direct-Hit search, included in our InstaFile Basic, is a great search that lets you know whether there is an identical trademark out there that will block the registration of your trademark. It’s a great, cost-effective search (and package) to get you started when you’re on a budget.

But as you should be aware, sometimes even a similar trademark can block yours from registering. That’s why we offer our expanded  Federal Search included in our InstaFile Standard to go deeper and uncover similar trademarks that could block the registration of your trademark. Our InstaFile Standard is our most popular package and well worth the additional cost.

Finally, our Comprehensive Search, included with our InstaFile Platinum, is the granddaddy of them all. Not only does it look out for similar trademarks, but it will also will let you know if your trademark could get rejected for other reasons. If it’s in your budget, it’s our best package to guarantee the registration of your trademark!

Understand that the USPTO charges per class. So keep this in mind when deciding how many classes in which you should register.

In general, you should register your trademark in the class or classes in which your goods or services are or will be provided. For instance, if you will use your trademark for shoes, that would be Class 25. But if you are also going to use for retail store services that would be in Class 35.

Oh, and don’t worry. We can help you figure out what class or classes your goods or services fall in to. The USPTO has an online tool we use that allows us to do this for you. Just tell us what you use your trademark with and we can tell you what they say.

Like our packages guarantee, we’ll get it on file for you that same day if not the next day. However, the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office is not as efficient as we are. So from start to finish, the average time to registration is about 11 months. And don’t worry, we know what you’re thinking. I can’t wait that long! So here’s a little good news. You don’t have to. You’re allowed to use your trademark as soon as you like. Ask your Account Manager and they can explain more.

Yes. There is always a chance. The chances tend to be less with our Standard and Platinum Packages as their searches are a little more comprehensive. But no matter what, if it happens we will be with you every step of the way with options to get past the refusal.
