Seder & Chandler, LLP, can assist you in these aspects of trademark law:

Trademark search and registration — We can facilitate a comprehensive federal, state, common law and international trademark search to determine if your proposed trademark has the potential to infringe on any existing trademarks. Seder & Chandler, LLP, will provide you with an advisory letter that spells out in clear language what the potential risks are, so that you can make an informed decision. Once directed to do so, we will complete the trademark application, register your trademark and deliver the trademark registration certificate to you when we receive it.

Trademark office actions — If the United States Patent and Trademark Office issues an "office action" concerning your trademark, we will respond appropriately. Some office actions merely ask for clarification or additional information. At the other end of the scale, an office action may deny your application. An office action must be responded to within six months of issuance. Seder & Chandler, LLP, will act promptly in an effort to overcome any roadblocks to a successful registration.

Trademark opposition proceedings — We can represent you if another party objects to your proposed trademark.

Trademark monitoring — Failure to monitor your trademark for potential violations can result in the loss of your trademark rights. Our firm can conduct regular reviews of new trademark registrations to avoid trademark infringement.

Trademark renewals — The U.S. government will not inform you when your trademark is up for renewal. When the time comes for the renewal of your trademark, Seder & Chandler, LLP, can take the steps necessary to secure continued trademark rights.
