I need someone to search for my mark and
tell me if someone else is already using it
I offer 2 types of searches at 2 different price points:
1. TARGETED SEARCH
I search the U.S. federal trademark register using the same methods that I relied on when reviewing applications at the USPTO.
2. COMPREHENSIVE SEARCH
In addition to searching the U.S. federal trademark register, I also look at:
U.S. state trademark registers
U.S. state records of business name registrations
Domain name records
Social media usage
I analyze the search results and summarize them in a letter as free from legalese as possible. I rate the risk of refusal due to similarity with another mark, and if I find any significant obstacles to your path to registration, I talk you through each one, explain if there is any way to solve them, and provide my experienced-based opinion about how likely you would be to overcome those problems. The cost of the search includes a detailed telephone call to go over any questions you have. If I think it's unlikely your mark would be registered, I don't file, and I don't charge you any additional fees.
Cost: flat fee. Total cost depends on total number of marks searched and type of search (targeted or comprehensive).
All fees can be paid securely online by credit card or e-check.
