 It's Trademark Time

Becoming an expert in your space? Congrats, you’re kind of a big deal!

That means you’re ready to put stronger protections in place around your brand. You need three things to get legit:

Brand Ownership

Lock in your rights and legally “call dibs” on your brand so no one else can steal it or copy you.

Peace of Mind

Make sure you’re not accidentally infringing on someone else’s trademark rights.

Fancy Paperwork

Get necessary legal documents that will help protect and leverage your brand in the future.

DID YOU KNOW?

Without trademarks, you have ZERO rights to your brand.

That's right! We’re talking business names, logos, slogans ... even podcast titles. Lots of entrepreneurs don’t protect their trademarks until it’s too late. So we made a short, free video to help you avoid the biggest, most dangerous mistakes that business owners make.

UH, YES PLEASE!

How Does This Process Work?

We won't lie to you — protecting your trademark can be long and complicated. But don’t worry, we’ve broken down the whole process into plain English for you.

It surprises many business owners to learn that the trademark process will take about 15 months minimum.

To give you a better idea of why this takes so long, here’s a quick summary.

Week 1 - Analyze

First, we do a lot of research to see if there may be issues or risks with your application.

Not-so-fun fact: over 50% of trademark applications get refused. That’s why working with an experienced trademark attorney is so important.

Week 2 - Apply

Within 2-3 weeks of signing up with Indie Law, we’ll have your application completed and submitted to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, aka the USPTO.

Month 10 - Processed

Because half a million of trademarks are filed each year, it generally takes up to 9-10 months for the USPTO to start reviewing your application. From there, your application needs to go through different stages of review before it will be successful. We’ll keep you posted throughout this process.

After 12 Months - Registered

On average, it takes 9-12 months for a trademark to become registered. Depending on various issues, it could take longer or get rejected entirely.

When we receive news of your registration (wahoo!), our team celebrates with you! You can expect some sweet gifts from us!

"OKAY, I NEED THIS!"

WHY INDIE LAW?

Don't just take our word for it.
See what people have to say about their experience with us.

Why not handle trademarks yourself?

Tracy came to us after talking with another lawyer who recommended our services. She knew she had a great brand worth protecting, so she wanted it done right with a team she could trust. Here's what Tracy had to say about working with us instead of going through the process herself.

 

Not sure if NOW is the time to trademark?

Meet Ashley. Ashley runs a thriving, multiple-six figure company, and she waited to take care of trademarks because that's what her trusted advisors and coaches recommended. But after getting blindsided by a cease and desist letter and being forced to rebrand, she came to Indie Law for help. Here's what Ashley has to say about her biggest lessons learned.

 

Why Indie Law over other law firms & legal options?

Great question. Here's our friend Harlan Shillinger to share his thoughts. Harlan is a legal marketing expert, and he knows LOTS of attorneys and law firms. In this video, Harlan shares his thoughts about what made working with Indie Law special and why he recommends us over other law firms.
