Trademark Registration Process
Plan for Success
TO TRADEMARK SELECTION
MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE!
Hint—Five choices and two are really bad.
Between 65-70% of all trademark applications receive a first refusal called an Office Action. For this reason, before you trademark a name and logo, do some pre-filing planning to avoid rejection. Follow Step 1 of our trademark registration process SELECT™. The SELECT™ step focuses upon actions designed to maximize your chances of success when you file to trademark a name and logo.
How to trademark a name includes performing a trademark search and using the SELECT™ process to choose a name that qualifies for brand protection. And, avoid choosing a descriptive trademark or a generic trademark. Instead, create a fanciful trademark or an arbitrary trademark.
