Do I Need an Attorney for a Patent or Trademark?

Technically, no. But do you have experience in the patent prosecution process? Do you know what the prosecutor will ask you and what forms, documentation, and other information and materials are required? Do you even know whether you need patent or trademark protection?

Navigating the process of patent prosecution is time-consuming, filled with technical details, and buried in paperwork specific to the USPTO. Don’t be discouraged. You simply need the assistance of a qualified registered patent attorney, like those on the team at Paul & Paul law firm, to ensure the protection of your patent portfolio.

Registering a trademark with the USPTO establishes you as the legal owner of the trademark and gives you the right to pursue a lawsuit in a federal court should there be a dispute over its use. While the trademark registration documents are fairly straight forward, there is a lot that goes on behind the scenes before and after filing for a trademark, for example:

  • Do you know whether the trademark you are going to register is already in use? We know where and how to find that out.
  • Do you know how to monitor for trademark infringement? We provide this service as well.
  • Do you know what to do if your trademark is infringed? We will give you all of your legal options.

Come in for a consultation and we will advise you on whether your intellectual property needs trademark or patent protection, how to obtain that protection, how best to protect it from unauthorized use, and what to do if your patent or trademark is infringed.

How Much Does a Patent or Trademark Lawyer Cost?

How Do I Choose a Patent Attorney or a Trademark Attorney?

You should always choose an attorney according to experience and proven track record. Beyond that, are you wondering what to ask a skilled intellectual property attorney in Wayne, PA? Here are some questions you need answers to in your initial consultation.

  • What is your experience with trademark law or patent law?
  • Can you describe the trademark registration process? Can you describe the patent prosecution process?

Paul and Paul is a great firm to work with, especially if you’re an entrepreneur. I’ve been working with the firm since 2013 and have two patents to show. What I love most about Paul and Paul is that they are a boutique firm. The level of attention I get from my attorney, Mr. Sluzas, is likely not found at a larger firm. My questions and concerns are typically answered within hours of my request, if not sooner. If you’re looking for a firm that is experienced, respected and responsive to your needs, I suggest Paul and Paul.
