A trademark refers to the identifying aspects of your brand. These may include your brand name, slogan, tagline, logo, or other design elements. A trademark identifies your goods or services, and distinguishes you from your competitors.
A business has rights in its trademark once it begins using the trademark on goods and services in the marketplace. However, these common law rights are limited, particularly in geographic scope. If you want stronger legal protection and nationwide rights in your trademark, you need to apply for U.S. federal trademark registration. Registering your trademark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is an option for all businesses participating in U.S. commerce. Federal registration provides some important benefits:
Based on the influx of trademark applications at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, it can take more than six months for an application to even be assigned to a USPTO examining attorney. Insufficient detail or other errors in your trademark application can cause further delays or even a refusal. Our seasoned attorneys know what the USPTO looks for, and we can make sure your application has the highest chance of success for swift approval and, ultimately, successful registration.

At District Trademark, we provide our clients with sophisticated counsel, unparalleled responsiveness, and creative solutions for their brand protection needs, all at an excellent value.
