Why Choose Us

 

100% Success Rate
Everyone tells you how many clients that have - but few companies will tell you their success rate. Only 41% of trademark applications are approved nationally. We're proud of our 100% success rate* nationwide. You'll save time & money by having it done the right way - the first time around. (Disclaimer: Past results do not determine future outcomes).
Comprehensive Name Search
Most companies include a federal search (direct hit search of USPTO website). Someone could still have rights to the name even if they're not showing up on the USPTO webiste. We search all 50 state trademark databases & all 50 state corporate databases that are available, common law sources and more to make sure that someone doesn't already own the trademark you're hoping to register before we file. If it's taken, we'll let you swap it out for something else - free of charge.
Flat Fee (No hidden fees)
Most "flat fees" for trademark registration do not include (1) filing fees to the government ($225+); (2) a comprehensive name search ($399); or (3) $700 per response to Office Actions you may receive from the USPTO before your application can be approved. (Many of our clients receive 3 Office Actions which would be an extra $2100 in legal fees). We offer "flat fee" packages that include everything you need for an approval.
Unlimited Legal Representation
We have packages that include unlimited legal representation for your application so you know we'll handle any issues that come up and it's all included within the flat fee.
Work with an Attorney
Our clients work one-on-one with an experienced trademark attorney that does the work for you. Not a do-it-yourself website.

I want to personally thank Ms. Chisholm for her assistance in establishing a Trademark for Elite Animation Academy. Our intellectual property strategy was very important to us for our brand, but our knowledge about the process was limited, after consulting with Ms. Chisholm we found the process very streamlined , expedited , and easy. We found Ms. Chisholm very responsive, knowledgeable , and professional from start to finish. We are pleased to know that our brand is now secure and we can now go forward to expand our marketing strategies and follow our growth plan for our schools. www.eliteanimationacademy.com

Sabra Seligman

It is certainly not easy finding the right attorney to deal with something of such importance as creating a new brand and protecting it. It took me a long time to make the decision but after speaking to Audrey 3 times I had no doubt that she would be the best to represent me and ensure I could get my trademarks approved. Her follow up skills and professionalism during the whole process was flawless, she made me feel safe by communicating constantly during the different steps of in the approval process and ultimately, she really made me feel my business was of value to her firm. Now that I have received my trademarks approved ( a total of 3 ) , I can say with eyes closed that my experience with her firm has been top notch and that in future If I need any more of trademark services I will be a returning client. www.mannalifefood.com

Treasure Leach

In college, I wanted to trademark the name of my clothing company. I did not know where to go, who to trust with my personal information, or how to fully protect my brand. I hired Chisholm Law Firm and was impressed by the personal service I received as well as the knowledge and wisdom about business I gained through consultations. I'm elated to say that I am now a college graduate with an approved trademark and that my vision has become a secured reality!

Phil Laudin

I am as serious about my band name as the music we create, so after a frustrating process of trying to figure out the best, most cost-effective way to trademark our band name, I ended up with a book by Audrey Chisholm – a great gem of a book. I was so impressed by her book, that I took the next logical step and hired Chisholm Law Firm to apply for a federal trademark – the best decision I ever made. Not only did our trademark get approved, but they kept me in the loop throughout the entire process – I even received a [impressive] report that detailed their search before they filed. If you want to get your trademark approved headache-free, I would definitely recommend Chisholm Law Firm. www.theblackofspace.com

Jessie Chambers

My business partner Calvin and I needed someone to make sure we legally owned our fitness and apparel brand before we launched the company. We hired Chisholm Law Firm and we are very happy with the results! The service was professional and our trademark was approved within months. We're super excited about the road ahead! This is my 2nd time hiring the firm for a trademark (both were approved) and I'll definitely be back for more! www.jessiechambers.com 0

Miriam Wedderburn

Soon after I had the idea for my brand I knew I should trademark it, but I did not know where to begin. Prior to hiring Chisholm Law Firm, I considered alternative trademark filing options, but I decided that I needed to rely on a professional who I could trust to work diligently on my behalf. Attorney Audrey Chisholm is both knowledgeable and diligent. I am pleased with the efforts of Attorney Chisholm and her team which resulted in the approval of my trademark application. This serves as a wonderful start to the new year!

5-Step Defensive Trademark Process

Unlike some of our competitors, we're in the business of providing our clients actual results. Our proprietary 5-Step Defensive Trademark process is the key to our 100% success rate in protecting our clients' brands. 

 

 

Step 1

Legal Consultation

You'll start with a confidential one-on-one consultation with a Chisholm Law Firm trademark attorney. We will learn about your brand, answer your legal questions regarding the process and begin outlining a custom strategy to provide you with maximum legal protection.

Step 2

Comprehensive Name Search

Just because you bought the domain name or started a LLC in the name of your business - does not mean that someone doesn't already own the legal rights to the name. We start with a name search that includes the federal registry, all available state trademark registries, all available state corporate registries, common law name searches, and more. Our goal is to identify any potential opposition to your ownership of the name BEFORE we ever file a trademark registration application with the government.

Step 3 & 4

Strategic Analysis & Digitalization of Specimen

We will evaluate the various filing options and make recommendations regarding the registration of your mark (e.g., protecting the words themselves, logo, colors, selecting the supplemental v. principal registry, etc.). We will also evaluate over 40 international classes before deciding the best classification for your trademark. We will research industry trends to provide maximum legal protection of your mark as your business grows and expands into new markets and industries. We will provide digitalization, adjustment and compilation of specimens using state-of-the-art technology in compliance with the USPTO requirements. This prevents having to file subsequent applications with the USPTO and pay additional filing fees due to submissions that do not meet their strict specifications.

Step 5

Ongoing Legal Representation

We will file your federal trademark application with the USPTO. Once your application is filed, the government will assign an examining attorney to review your application. We will provide ongoing legal representation throughout the application process until a determination is made or up to a year - whichever comes first.
