Do your clients provide goods and/or services that may benefit from the federal registration of a trademark? If so, it is imperative that you view this course in which trademark law expert Kevin W. Grierson teaches attorneys how to protect their clients' trademark rights beyond those governed by common law or state registrations. Grierson examines the various steps involved in filing a trademark application before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) from performing a clearance search to responding to office actions. He also covers the two online filing methods available, tips on creating descriptions of goods and services, and key statutory requirements. Finally, Grierson shares common issues and objections that attorneys will face when they file applications, and the declarations they must make after their clients' marks have been registered. This program covers everything an attorney needs to know to register a federal trademark and thus is essential for intellectual property attorneys and all general practitioners.
