Gerben Law Firm provides clients with a full suite of trademark services.
Trademark law in the United States is complicated. Even if you successfully register a federal trademark, you may be surprised to find you are not the only one with rights to the U.S. trademark. Trademark rights may also be earned through registration with any of the 50 state governments or through use of the trademark in commerce (commonly known as “common law” rights). This is why our trademark law firm offers comprehensive trademark search which, in addition to searching the U.S. Government’s federal trademark database, includes a trademark search in all 50 States trademark databases as well as “common law” databases.
