Get Started with Trademark Clearance.

The insurance you need before filing.

In order to receive the full protections afforded by law for your trademark, you must file for federal registration of your mark with the United States Patent & Trademark Office(USPTO).


However, before investing your time and money in adopting a trademark and filing an application, it is pertinent that the interested mark be thoroughly researched in order to increase the likelihood of registration and minimize rejection by the USPTO and oppositions by other trademark owners.  The importance of trademark novel searches is generally disregarded by start up business owners  - don't make that potentially costly mistake. Business owners should have new brands and trademarks cleared by a Trademark Attorney BEFORE proceeding with development of advertising and marketing materials.
