Q: Isn't the trademark application process the same regardless of which firm I choose?
A: Indeed, at first glance, it may seem that there is no difference between firms because the format of the trademark application procedure is fixed.
However, there are differences in the knowledge and experience of firms in areas that are difficult to see.
Consideration of the application format and designation of goods/services
For example, whether to file a logo application or a text application,
which designated products or services should be chosen?
These questions will vary depending on your plans for using the trademark, the difficulty of registering the trademark, and the surrounding business environment.
In our Premium Service, we will conduct a thorough hearing and propose the most appropriate response to your business development.
Cases with high degree of difficulty in the process
In the case of highly difficult work, such as handling a notice of reasons for refusal or handling situations in which rights are utilized, the experience of the firm comes into play.
At our firm, we have never handled such cases in the past,
- Cases that have never been handled before and were difficult to handle by the IP department alone.
- Cases in which the pronunciation of the mark was exactly the same as the prior trademark and the trademark was judged to be similar.
We have experience in successfully overturning examination decisions and obtaining registrations for difficult trademark cases, such as those in which the reading of the trademark was exactly the same as the prior trademark and the trademark was found to be similar.
The more clear, catchy, and economically valuable a trademark is, the more difficult it may be to register it.
If you want to overcome such difficulties and register your trademark, we encourage you to choose a patent firm based on "quality.
