What is a Trademark
What is a Trademark Lawyer
In the United States, a trademark attorney is a person who is licensed and registered by a state to practice law. This person then practices or specializes in filing and prosecuting trade and service mark registration at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Our primary attorney is licensed in California and is a patent attorney that can also practice as a trademark attorney at the USPTO. Our primary patent paralegal is sponsored at the USPTO and can register trademarks. Importantly, Carson Patents practices in the areas of trade and service mark registration and licensing.
Trademarks can be registered both in the U.S. and internationally. U.S. registration is submitted to the USPTO. International trademark registration is done through the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO) where the Madrid Protocol offers a single international trademark application to seek international protection for a trade or service mark.

Register a trademark in the U.S. and Internationally
Trade and service marks are intellectual property protecting brand names, logos, slogans, and audio clips for products and services. For most businesses, trademarking in the country in which they are located is sufficient. For American-based businesses, international trademarking is started by filing a registration application at the USPTO. The same is true in other countries. Check out the Carson Patents affiliates page for trade and service mark registration in countries other the the U.S.
After a national application is filed (basic application) or issued (basic registration), the Madrid Protocol offers a single international application to seek or get protection for the mark in other countries.

Trademark Registration Attorney Help
Trademark Lawyer Help
For all types and kinds of trademarks, Carson Patents offers expert trademark attorney services remotely online. An owner can trademark business names, slogans, logos, and even sound bytes (audio clips).
A separate trade or service mark registration application is required for each mark. In other words, if you want to trademark a business name and the logo with the business name, that would be two registration applications. The first application is for the words of the business name and is usually a standard character mark kind of application in order to have the most flexible use options. The second application is for the logo image (with or without the business name thereon) and is usually a special form mark kind of application.
