Before determining whether to file an expensive trademark application, Velawcity’s senior IP paralegals can assist in performing either a generic search, or a simple USPTO search or an official “full search” via Corsearch or another preferred provider. Once the decision has been made to file a registration, Velawcity’s senior intellectual property paralegals expertly assist with Trademark, Service Mark and Copyright applications for registration, whether with the USPTO or a particular state where the mark will be used in commerce.
