Trademark Searches, Filing and Prosecution
Any trade mark that is registered should be a strong protectable brand. What may seem a good idea, or innovative, may lead to rejection for many different reasons. And if your application succeeds, how do you use the trade mark effectively. These are all aspects that are covered in detail when you consult with Adams & Adams Attorneys. We’ll talk to you about the process, about the suitability and strength of the mark, unintended connotations of your proposed mark, how to properly use your mark, potential legal refusals to register the mark and other issues as may pertain to your particular circumstances.
