CREATING and PROTECTING brand assets can play a huge role in the growth and recognition of a company as well it’s products and services. Throughout the process you will likely encounter obstacles to registration.  These obstacles can be overcome with a proper and thorough investigation or anonymous acquisition.  Here are a few examples:

  • There is evidence of common law usage of a mark that will block you from obtaining a federal trademark registration with the USPTO
  • The domain you need to launch your new product or service is already registered

  • The inventors listed on the patent application are no longer with your company and need to be located.
