TRADEMARKS FOR OUR CLIENTS.
As Experienced Trademark Attorneys, We Are Passionate About Handling Your Trademark Registration Process the Right Way
Every business - no matter how new or how small - deserves customized attention when developing a strategy for its trademarks. It might be tempting to use a cookie cutter service that is inexpensive to attempt to secure your marks. When it comes to the trademark registration process, taking short cuts or offering less expensive “light” versions of research and anaylsis is a recipe for major problems later. I have often had new clients hire me to fix problems created by other lawyers or online automated trademark registration services. The problems were created by skipping the comprehensive legal research AND the analysis by an experienced trademark attorney. There are some things that just can’t be outsourced or automated, and the process of securing trademarks is one of those things.
With every client, we do comprehensive research with our premium, paid databases that the public does not have access to. We do this because an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. It is the research and analysis process that gives us vital information on how to proceed with any given mark and application. Without that vital information, we could be steering blind into a storm. We want to know what risks your mark faces BEFORE we spend your money to prepare an application and file with the USPTO. The research we do gives us the knowledge we need to advise you fully on whether your chances of securing a mark are good, or whether you need to make some revisions to your mark, or the scope of your proposed trademark before we file.
It is because of the time we spend on this process, and the care that goes into our analysis and recommendations that we have such a high success rate of securing marks for our clients. We know many lawyers who will charge you less for a trademark because they are skimping on the research part of the process. They are okay taking your money and waiting for problems, because problems are how they will be able to charge you more money after you are already on file.
I have a huge problem with that. It does a big disservice to our clients, and is frankly and ethical issue. We don’t do business that way at Leverage Legal Group. We want you to make informed decisions, and we do not want you to get hit with unexpected fees or expenses.
The research and report part of our process is what makes us totally unique as a trademark application and trademark registration law firm, and it is why our clients come to us again and again, and refer their friends and colleagues to us.
The other part of our process is the preparation of your application. Automated services cannot take the place of a seasoned, successful trademark attorney’s expertise with this. If the application is not prepared correctly, you could face a refusal from the USPTO, or you could face a legal challenge from third parties either during the trademark registration process or even after your trademark is registered. We don’t want you to be left with that kind of risk, and so we do the due diligence only an experienced trademark attorney can do to prevent unwanted surprises and problems. You get what you pay for when it comes to trademarks, and with Leverage Legal Group, you can rest assured you are getting the very best guidance as you seek trademark registration for your mark.
We look forward to assisting you the right way in securing your trademark. And I look forward to personally overseeing the process every step of the way.

OUR UNIQUE PROCESS & TIMELINE
APPLYING FOR A TRADEMARK
Comprehensive Trademark Research
TURN AROUND: 1-2 WEEKS
Once we receive your completed trademark questionnaire, we begin our proprietary trademark research process using in-depth, premium trademark research databases not available to the public. We work to determine the likelihood of success of securing your trademark, and any potential conflicts or risks that could bar the registration of your trademark.
Conference with Trademark Attorney to Discuss Findings
USUALLY AN HOUR
We provide you with a written report of our trademark research and recommendations. We then get on the phone with you to discuss our analysis and findings about your trademark, and we make recommendations about whether to file your trademark application or make revisions to your trademark before we file with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). We have an exceptionally high rate of success in securing trademarks for our clients because of our unique trademark research and consultation process with each client. If changes to your trademark are recommended, we provide a second search for any revised mark at no extra charge.
Preparation of Trademark Application
TURN AROUND: 2-7 DAYS
Once we have an agreed upon strategy, and you make any recommended revisions to your trademark, we then prepare the application for your trademark.
We work with you closely to gather the necessary supporting documentation.
Once the application is drafted, we send it to you for your review and approval. After you review the draft trademark application and approve and sign it, we file it for you with the USPTO.
Trademark Examination Process
TURN AROUND: 3-10 MONTHS, ON AVERAGE
Once you application is filed, we monitor the process closely and respond to any non-substantive Office Actions (refusals) from the USPTO.
We will keep you informed of any updates or changes to your file, and once the process is completed by the USPTO, we will go over the outcome of that trademark examination process with you.
Finally, once your trademark is approved and registered, we will send you your trademark registration certificate.
TRUSTED AND EXPERIENCED TRADEMARK ATTORNEYS
We feel your pain. No one loves spending money on a lawyer. But you know you need to do it.
But you should know that not all trademark lawyers are created equal.
Just because someone has a law degree does not mean they know how to secure your trademarks for you (or protect them). I know we lawyers all look the same. But we aren't the same.
It can be costly to hire someone who isn't exceptionally good at the kind of work you need, especially when it comes to trademarks. You risk your entire brand and business by using a lawyer who doesn't specialize in trademarks. No joke.
And no, you don't have to hire a local lawyer to do your trademark work. We can secure your trademarks for you no matter where you are. Don't hire a trademark lawyer just because they are local. Hire the best trademark lawyer.
That’s where Jessica comes in.
When you work with Jessica and her team, you have a world-class, seasoned and successful trademark lawyer on your side....one who is focused on your success AND who loves what she does -- for easy and predictible flat-fees.
Yes, we said flat fee.
(It wasn’t a typo.)
Believe it or not, our flat-fee billing model for trademark applications is a win-win.
In the old, billable-hours model, it’s in the trademark lawyer’s interest to work less efficiently. Revenue and bonuses come from staying chained to the desk and leaving the office last.
The result? A miserable existence for the lawyer and a sky-high fee for the client.
With a flat-fee trademark model, it’s in your trademark lawyer’s interests to work more efficiently. To get the job done effectively in as little time as possible.
And, instead of working from central offices, Jessica and her team can work from anywhere.
Why is that a good thing for you?
Because that means you get a happy, high-caliber trademark lawyer who has a life and does a better job, with less overhead....so at a way lower cost to you.
Like we said, win-win.
A trademark lawyer who thinks like an entrepreneur?
Jessica thinks like an entrepreneur because she is not just an experienced trademark lawyer, but is an experienced and successful entrepreneur herself.
Which means when you get your next big idea, she'll right there with you -- seeing it from both the legal side and the profit side.
Who is Jessica? We are so glad you asked....
Jessica actually innovated the flat-fee, virtual legal model in 2002.
She saw that lawyers' and clients' interests were at odds, and it didn't make sense to her given the important role lawyers play in their clients' businesses.
So she turned the industry on its head, and won several national business awards as a result.
Her passion is treating your business with as much care
as she would one of her own.
Imagine having a world-class trademark lawyer who makes you Priority Number One, knows how to protect your brand name, business, profits and intellectual property assets, and who gets the work done for you quickly and with no hidden fees.
