Your reputation is one of your business’ best assets. Your customers know you. They trust you. They rely on your good name to provide the products or services that you are known for. Trademark protection ensures that you are able to keep someone else from jeopardizing the good will of your customers or harming your reputation by confusing consumers and copying your hard-earned success. Federal trademark laws help companies that engage in interstate commerce, including businesses that provide products or services to customers and clients from out-of-state, but local businesses may need to look to Virginia law to protect their reputation. Whether you do business around the world, across the country, or in your home town, we can help you protect your business.

How do I get a trademark?
You can get a trademark simply by using a name or logo to identify your company, product or services.
Can I trademark my business’ name?
Usually. If the name is not too descriptive of your goods services and no other company is using a mark that is too similar you should be able to register your business’ name.
Do I even need an attorney?
No, you don’t. You can file the application yourself. However, it isn’t always an easy process, and you can easily end up with a rejection notice, or with a trademark that won’t be enforceable.
How much do your services cost?
Our basic trademark application package, including availability research, the initial filing, and responding to USPTO office actions start at $500.
I registered a trademark. Now what?

You will need to renew your registration periodically, but you should also make sure that you are still using your mark, and that no other business is infringing on your mark. If you don’t enforce your trademark rights you could lose them.
