Puts the focus on you!
When we say we offer Client – Focused Service, it’s not just a slogan.  It’s a philosophy that permeates everything we do.  In a nutshell, it means that when you hire us for assistance with your trademark matters, we will want to know about you and your business, so we can suggest a plan of action designed to effectively protect your trademarks as completely as possible within your budget.  This means that ordinarily we will want to:

  • Consult with you about your business – for example, we’d usually want to know what are your near term and long term plans, and what markets you do business in or intend to do business in
  • Learn about how you run your business and the competitive environment you operate in
  • Find out why you have decided at this time to consult with a trademark lawyer
  • Find out which trademarks you use or intend to use, and which are the most important
  • Discuss the nature of the trademarks you are using or intend to use – are they strong or are they descriptive?  If we believe there may be problems with the protectability of one of your trademarks, we’d want to discuss that with you.
  • Discuss your budget available for protecting your trademarks

Based on what we learn about your business, we would then develop a strategy designed to protect your trademark rights working within your available budget. 
Some things we might suggest could include:

  • Performing an exact match trademark screening or a basic preliminary screening as a first step once we have decided on a mark that is important for your business to protect
  • Conducting a comprehensive trademark search with an attorney opinion letter to gauge whether a mark appears available for use and registration
  • Applying to register the mark in other countries, depending on your business plan

In the end, the goal is to provide you with the best combination of services in order to help you establish protectable trademarks in the markets that matter to you.  That’s what Client – Focused Service means.
