Filing a Trademark (without a Trademark Attorney)

Many clients ask if a Kansas City (KC) trademark attorney is required to file a trademark application.  The short answer is no.  However, there are reasons you may want to use a trademark attorney to file for a trademark registration.

  1. ®  Trademark law can be complicated and determining what to protect may be difficult
  2. ®  A trademark, if protected properly, can increase the value of your business.  See Google…
  3. ®  You can waist money by incorrectly filing your trademark.  For example, you may chose the wrong class or wrong type of mark to register your mark.
  4. ®  Your mark may be rejected by the Trademark Office for various reasons, costing you more money and time, versus the cost and time of doing it right the first time.
  5. ®  Even if you succeed in filing a trademark application, if you don’t do a proper search you may find out that someone already registered the mark…wasting more money.
  6. ®  Even if your trademark become registered, you may find out too late that use of your trademark violates someone else’s trademark rights.  This may cost you even more money based upon a number of factors including being sued, rebranding your business or changing your signage and marketing materials…
