205 E. 7th Street, Suite 403 Hays, KS 67601

Trademark Attorney Overland Park, KS

This discovery session gets you concrete legal advice on when and how to apply for a trademark and also includes a manual preliminary knockout search to identify identical or nearly identical hits, which gives you an idea if your proposed word mark (names or phrases) or design mark (typically logos) will be problematic.

We discuss your brand and business trajectory; where are you now, where you want to go, and how we can get you there. You’ll also get a general trademark education, and by the end, you will understand the basics of what is and is not material you can trademark, the nuances of trademark law as it relates to “creative” versus generic names and phrases, and visual appearances. We will discuss how obtaining a trademark applies to your business, answer any questions regarding the strategic timing of obtaining a trademark, answer any questions specific to your business and determine if a trademark is right for you.

Should you decide to move forward with a trademark application with us within 7 days of your session, this fee is applied to your Package pricing.

The USPTO’s trademark application approval rate has been anything but steady these past few years. Today, there are many new business owners in Overland Park who want to apply for their business trademark themselves, but if they don’t go with legal help, they’re likely going for rejection.

There are dozens of different factors that can get your application rejected, and those include:

- Generic terms

- Descriptive terms

- Deceptive marks

- Offensive or profane terms

- Similar or identical marks 

Unfortunately, not everyone knows how to address these factors and ensure they trademark their name or logo in the right way, which increases the chances of rejection. With the help of our legal team at Grabbe Law, we will ensure that you trademark what you need in the right way.

Our team will help you evaluate whether your mark proposal is likely to get approved, how you can improve your chances of getting approved, and how you can monitor your brand if you already got approved for your trademark.

How Can You Protect Your Brand with a Trademark Attorney servicing Overland Park, KS?

Are you new to the business industry in Overland Park, KS? Congratulations! Most business types and sizes can thrive in this city, but if you want to avoid future problems with your brand, you must ensure you trademark it.

Keep in mind that, even if you bought a domain name or started an LLC in your brand’s name, that doesn’t protect you from trademark problems. If someone else already owns the legal rights to your brand’s name, logo, or another similar aspect, they have the right to ask you to take yours down.

Our goal as trademark attorneys servicing Overland Park, KS, is to help you identify any potential problems with your proposed mark before we file the application with the USPTO.

Another thing to consider is that there are many different filing options you can consider. In essence, you can trademark words, logos, colors, and more. To ensure everything goes smoothly, you must also choose the right classification for your trademark so that you avoid any problems with the USPTO as your business expands and grows.

Even after we’re finished helping you file your application for a trademark, we’re not done yet. Our team will provide you with legal representation throughout the pendency of your application. 

If you got approved and decide you want to monitor the federal and global trademark databases to prevent someone else from using your intellectual property, you can get a trademark watch subscription with us. 

Overall, our trademark service includes everything you need from the first step of doing a name search in the federal and state trademark registries up until receiving your approval and monitoring your marks.

Are Trademarks and Copyrights the Same?

It is important to understand what a trademark is before we get to work. It is common for people to confuse copyrights and trademarks, and while they both work as a protective measure for your business, they don’t “protect” the same aspects.

A trademark will protect your company’s name, your product names, and other assets from your brand’s identity, including logos, color palettes, and more. On the other hand, copyrights focus on protecting original works, including literary, musical, artistic, and others.

In other words, you would get a trademark to protect aspects of your brand’s identity, whereas you would get a copyright to protect any original piece of work you made.

If you’re planning on moving forward with a new business and want to ensure you don’t have any problems with similar marks in the future, then our trademark attorney servicing Overland Park, KS, is the way to go.
