STEP #1: Educate & Enroll

Free and No Obligation.

Let's get on the same page.

Time to Complete: Less than 1 Minute.

Just like your customers, your brand also has unique needs. After enrolling, we educate each other.

First we learn about you, your business and the goals you have for your brand. Second, you’ll learn about the registration process via our proprietary video library and Action-Sheets.

STEP #2 Evaluate

Trademark searches empower us to craft a smart plan.

Time to Complete: 2-7 Days.

Second, we cut through the lawyer-speak and outline your options in plain English.

When finished, you will have explored what we call “the Two Big Questions”:

1. Can You Even Use It? and

2. Can You Own the Rights to It?

More importantly, you’ll have a plan you have confidence in.

STEP #3: Equip

Putting your plan into action.

Time to Complete: 2+ Days.

We implement your plan, which typically begins with filing trademark applications. It may also include an Amazon Branding program or Shopify Branding program. If you have immediate needs for enforcement or take-down notices, those start as well.

When complete, your applications are pending.

STEP #4: Examine

The Trademark Office and the Public scrutinize your Application.

Time to Complete: 9 - 24 Months.

It begins with an Office Examination by an Examining Attorney (the “EA”). The EA registers rejections and objections in letters called Office Actions. You must respond to these correctly to keep your application alive. Once (and if) the EA believes that your application is in order, the mark is Published.

Next, the public has the opportunity to examine your mark by registering “Opposition” to your mark’s registration. Here’s where preparation really pays off, because carelessly filed applications can trigger unnecessary Opposition Proceedings, and these proceedings can be lengthy...and expensive.

STEP #5: Enforce

Building your defenses.

Time to Complete: Ongoing for the Life of the Registration.

Step 5 is a journey of a thousand miles.

After you have secured your registration, under US Trademark Law, to keep it and strengthen it you must ‘police it.’ Policing is a fancy way of saying that you can’t just let anyone use your mark, and it involves four activities:

  • monitoring databases and the internet to spot potential infringers
  • notifying the likely infringers that you have a registered mark
  • telling the competitor-infringers to stop using your mark (to ‘cease and desist’)
  • if necessary, litigating to force compliance with the law

My Story

I Have Over 15 Years of Experience in the Trademark Industry

Unlike most attorneys, I’m an entrepreneur — some say a successful entrepreneur. And as much as I enjoy the thought that these colleagues may be right, I certainly wasn’t always a successful entrepreneur. My first shots at starting businesses in college resulted in abandoned patent applications, zero sales and debt (not to mention late homework and shoddy lab assignments). Later, I learned hard lessons as people I trusted blatantly stole my inventions, and suppliers I trusted failed to deliver products. And, through my experience at a large law firm as well as in my own law practice, I’ve seen just about every kind of chicanery imaginable.

What our clients ARE saying

As a new solopreneur, navigating last-minute legal issues is stressful! Steven expertly assisted me,
and I give him my absolute highest recommendation.
Rarely, if ever, do I find a knowledgable lawyer who is also a consummate and successful business professional.
Steven’s both, and speaks ‘plain English’!

Ellin Sidell


A troll tried to hold my now Wall-Street Journal best-seller “You Are The Brand” hostage — the week before it published.
Fortunately, long before that happened, Steve designed & guided me through a plan.
When the attack came he was able to instantly stop the harassment. My book published on time and without a slap-down.
It was like watching legal-judo!
