Dallas Trademark Search & Registration Lawyers

Understanding Your Options & Limitations in North TX & Beyond

Our team can help you in selecting marks that are not only strong, but that can achieve legal protection. Rather than simply letting you register any mark - we provide comprehensive trademark solutions to ensure your brand can and is protected. We often recommend conducting either a knockout or comprehensive trademark search to identify any potentially conflicting marks that pose a threat to the success of your trademark application and registration. Once your trademark is registered, our team is here to guide you in maintaining, renewing, and defending your registration. Because we represent brand owners, we are passionate about brand protection and regularly counsel clients in infringement matters.

Trademark Clearance and Searches

We often recommend conducting a preliminary knockout search of the USPTO trademark register to identify any already applied-for or registered conflicting marks. Our knockout search, is a good indication of whether your mark will face any problems in the registration process due to other similar marks in use. We also offer full-availability searches and can order, review and analyze a comprehensive trademark search for you. A full-availability search is more comprehensive and more expensive than our knockout search because it can reveal federal trademark applications and registrations, registrations with each state trademark office, unregistered common law marks, as well as internet domain names that may conflict with your chosen mark.

Trademark Registration

Registering a trademark can often require extensive knowledge of trademark law and procedure. Our extensive experience in the world of trademarks allows us to prepare and tailor your trademark application to meet your specific needs and the examiner’s. We prepare and file trademark applications and are your representative with the USPTO for the entire process. Unlike many others, who process trademark applications like factory assembly lines, we provide individualized attention to meet your specific trademark needs. In short, we won’t simply fill out a form for you and let you try to go it alone.

After your application is filed, we keep you informed on the applications’ status and promptly notify you if any substantive responses are required. We respond to trademark office actions and, if necessary, will represent you and defend your mark in proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. Once registered, we maintain, renew, and defend your registration by notifying you of renewal dates and any other official activity with your registered mark.

Trademark Enforcement

Our clients are passionate brand owners, and we are passionate about protecting their brands. Our attorneys are experienced in challenging infringing uses of identical or confusingly similar marks through cease and desist letters, negotiations, in litigation in federal court and before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. At Mullin Rybicki, we know that online marketing is how our clients reach many of their customers. That is why we make it a priority to stay current with the latest trends in online trademark enforcement and offer services to defend your brand against cybersquatters and counsel clients in domain name disputes, cybergripe sites, and other social media issues.
