Urgent Trademark - 10 Hour Trademarking Services

Urgent Trademark offers the fastest comprehensive IP trademarking service anywhere — in just 10 hours! Urgent Trademark services are for the times your trademark needs to be filed today, if not yesterday. We will expedite the entire trademark process — without skipping any needed steps or cutting any corners — exponentially faster than any other trademark company. You will save 2 weeks compared to hiring a trademark attorney or 1 week if using a trademark search company. Double these estimated comparisons if any conflicting or similar names are found to exist, that need to be analyzed, competitively checked, and reviewed with a trademark attorney. Additionally, with Urgent Trademark, you can search up to 3 trademarks to get 1 that is legally clear. This is a huge benefit if you need it. The average trademark faces a 35%-40% chance of being legally blocked. So, having no extra cost option to try a 2nd or even a 3rd trademark is wonderful. We even offer creative naming assistance. Any practical time delay could make or break your start-up and ultimate business success. We’ll make sure your name, slogan, or logo can be successfully trademarked. Urgent Trademark will accomplish all your needed trademarking tasks including comprehensive IP trademark and common law research, database costs, analysis, independent trademark attorney analysis, and successfully submitting your trademark application. When we say 10 hours, we mean 10 hours — because we’ve handled over 75,000 trademarks — just like yours.

Please call us for a free consultation — just $1000.

You don’t have to accept the expensive risk of losing a desired trade name when filing with the USPTO or CPO, simply because the research company made you wait a few days or a week for your results. If multiple searches of backup trade names is needed to achieve a final trademarkable name, you will be waiting 2, 3, or even 4 weeks to complete your naming task, if the trademark attorney or research company takes a week to turn on each name. Why delay the introduction of your new product or the opening of your new business because the search company is slow? An available trade name today, may not be available a month from now. Intellectual property is perishable.

Urgent Trademark Package Details:

  • We will research UP TO 3 names, slogans or logos to get 1 LEGALLY CLEAR.

Since 2010, only about 5% of our Urgent Trademark clients exhaust 3 trademark choices. There is no refund if all 3 of your choices prove to be legally blocked because we may have spent over 30 hours of staff and trademark attorney time and incurred database costs for 3 blocked trademarks. We hope your chosen mark is legally clear, but ultimately, our job is to keep you away from a trademark that is not legally available.

Let TradeMark Express show you how simple your necessary research can be!

True Deep Comprehensive IP Legal Research

TradeMark Express conducts expert Federal Trademark, State Trademark, and Common Law Research (first use) on the leading online sources of LEXIS-NEXIS and/or Thompson & Thompson business suite of 6500 databases. Each area of potential similarity is thoroughly searched for trade name conflict and similarities — based on name similarity of sound, appearance, and meaning. These online databases, with billions of references to search through, are updated daily. A typical trade name search may involve researching thousands of different compiled informational databases to find a potential problem.

Lower priced preliminary searches by other trademark companies are often conducted on books or quarterly updated CD-ROMs or the USPTO web site and usually skip searching needed State Trademarks and/or Common Law (first use) altogether. Don’t accept the liability in order to save a few dollars! The reason preliminary legal research is significantly less expensive is that these other companies are not spending the time and money to do a deep enough, comprehensive IP search. We know from the experience of conducting over 500,000 trade name research strategies that similarities are much more likely to affect a clients’ legal use, than conflicts which a preliminary search will uncover. Most strong similarities in sound, appearance, and meaning are found only when conducting a comprehensive IP search. Thus, TradeMark Express only conducts comprehensive IP searches for its clients because of its expertise.

For our trademark services, we pay for the top business databases, so that our clients can depend on our results to make their trade name decisions. To go with or not to go with any given trade name has to be based upon the most thorough research available. Since 1992,TradeMark Express prides itself in offering our clients the most up-to-date information available.

BEWARE!

Other trademark “filing only” companies not providing the depth of comprehensive IP research will cost half of the price we require, but will provide ultimately and utterly worthless trademark services, as their 35% to 40% of their clients will get USPTO or CIPO refusals and then later receive cease-and-desist orders over the ensuing 6 years — because their application to trademark is done blindly with little or no research. Also, governments only check their own databases which account for 15% of what may legally affect your future commercial use. So, your trademark may be outright refused in just 3.5 months at the USPTO, when they do their internal research, or in 10 months when CIPO does their internal research.

No government researches common law — first use — for you, which account for 85% of businesses. Companies, as well as any Federal trademarks who think you are infringing in similar marks in sound, appearance or meaning, have up to 6 years to enforce against your new use, your new trademark to avoid acquiescence to you. Additionally, there are 1 million State trademarks, in the USA that may affect you too.

USA Federal & State -or- Canada Trademark Research

TradeMark Express will search the pending and registered Federal AND State trademark files in accordance with the USPTO’s policy, namely looking for conflicts and similarities in sound, appearance, or meaning. This involves searching for synonyms, spelling variations, word placement, etc.

US Federal & State or CIPO Trademark Analysis

TradeMark Express will search the pending and registered Federal AND State trademark files in accordance with the USPTO’s policy, namely looking for conflicts and similarities in sound, appearance, or meaning. This involves searching for synonyms, spelling variations, word placement, etc.

US Federal & State or CIPO trademark analysis: TradeMark Express will analyze the research results, thereby saving you $400 for an hour of trademark attorney analysis time. If there are conflicts or similarities found that may affect your legal use, then we put a hold on the rest of the research until you’ve had a chance to speak to one of the referred network of 9 independent trademark attorneys we provide with our fee. If after speaking with an attorney, you decide not to pursue the name, a rollover of your remaining balance happens.

Our Premium Package

When you choose our Premium Package a comprehensive IP research and application package can be rolled over but not refundable. All remaining funds will be applied towards a replacement name, logo, or slogan. Our Premium package will save $100 off the application when you decide to commit to a name, slogan, or logo. Hopefully, your first trademark choice is found to be legally clear and can be trademarked, but if not, then we start over with a new mark after you replenish your Premium Package back to $700. If there are no conflicts or similarities, we will automatically continue to your National Common Law search.

If there are no conflicts or similarities, and if after speaking with 1 of 9 trademark attorneys, you decide to keep going, to pursue the name, logo, or slogan, then the next step is your trademark filing. Success!

USA -or- Canada National Common Law Research

TradeMark Express will search for commercial availability of the mark in over 6500 paid database Lexis-Nexis and/or Thompson Compumark files. Businesses have "first use" or Common Law rights to their trade names in the geographic trade area they serve. The National Common-Law trademark research we offer will help you to determine if you face any trade restrictions — which areas you can or cannot do business — under Common Law. Those with Common Law rights have 6 years to find and enforce their rights whether or not you have a trademark in the USA. In Canada, it matters if you will have to share rights with a prior user, of the same or similar mark under Common Law. Neither the USPTO or CIPO does this needed research. They expect you to research these databases before you apply for a trademark.

We Do It All For You

Any responsible trademark company like Trademark Express does it all for you, both USA or Canada Common Law Analysis. We will analyze the research results, thereby saving you $400 for an hour of trademark attorney analysis time.

We Always Offer a Rollover

Because you chose our Premium Package our comprehensive IP research & application package can be rolled over, but not refundable. All remaining funds will be applied towards a replacement name or slogan.

We Can Provide You $200 in Savings

The idea behind our Premium package is that when you commit to getting a name or slogan, you will save $100 off the application and if your first mark choice is found to be legally clear, and can be trademarked. However, if it is not, then we start over with a new mark after you replenish your Premium Package back to $700.

If there are no conflicts or similarities we will automatically continue to your trademark filing. If there are any conflicts or similarities, and if after speaking with one of the 5 the trademark attorneys, you decide to keep going, to pursue the name or slogan, then the next step is the National Common Law search.

Expert Legal Research Analysis Included

TradeMark Express expert research staff having spent 5-6 hours executing your comprehensive IP research, will elevate similar and conflicting names, logos, or slogans for you to:

  • Verify if still in use
  • Contact any one of the provided trusted network of 5 independent trademark attorneys. The trademark attorneys average 25 years of experience each. They are available to you to answer any legal trademark questions.

Your trademark’s legal rights depend on your proposed name, slogan, or logo to be legally clear. Comprehensive IP search services will produce 300 to 500 pages of research for one trademark: trade names similarities in sound, appearance, and meaning may affect legal use, as well as channels of distribution, related goods and services — even famous names, too! All of these aspects matter in the analysis. We do not recommend to interpret your own complex research results. If an infringed trade name holder does exist, then they have up to six years to enforce their trademark or common law rights against your trademark!

TradeMark Express analysis benefits our clients in two ways :

  • It allows us to break the traditional Federal and State Trademark and Common Law Research (first use) research into 3 research steps. This is how we do step-by-step research. By stopping to analyze what each step yields. If clear, we keep going. If anything may affect you, we stop so you may talk to a trademark attorney. If clear, we keep going. If blocked, you can rollover the remainder of your Premium Package fee, after you replenish it back to $700.
  • It means you do not have to hire your own trademark attorney to analyze your sizable report. Trademark attorneys usually cost $300 to $450 per hour, depending where you live. We provide trademark attorney access included in our low fee: analyzing a complete report can take 1 to 2 hours — with our trademark services you can save exponentially.
