We conduct and review searches of federal and state trademark applications and registrations and advise our clients on the potential risks involved with choosing a particular name, product configuration or advertising.
Basic Search
A “knock-out” search of the United States Patent and Trademark database for exact matches. This type is most useful in determining the availability of a proposed name when deciding among a number of choices.
Comprehensive Search
An all-inclusive, in-depth search for identical and confusingly similar marks that may cause a road-block to registration of your mark. The comprehensive search includes a search of the federal state and common law databases and the internet domain database.
We prepare, file and prosecute trademark applications both in the United States and abroad. Once registered, we manage our clients' trademark portfolio through our trademark watching, renewal and maintenance services. We are also able to pursue licensing opportunities on behalf of our clients by drafting and negotiating licensing documents.
Failure to maintain your trademark can result in the loss of your trademark or unnecessarily limiting your rights. De Novo Legal PC is available to assist you with your trademark maintenance.
De Novo Legal PC will monitor your trademarks and provide you with monthly reports analyzing similar marks filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The monitoring program monitors pending trademark applications and provides notice of potentially conflicting marks. If appropriate, we will also draft cease and desist letters on your behalf.
