TRADEMARK PROSECUTION & FEDERAL REGISTRATION

Schwartz Law Firm, P.C. regularly represents business owners and entrepreneurs in filing applications for federal trademark registration.

While rights in a mark can be established based on legitimate use of the mark, owning a federal trademark registration on the Principal Register provides several advantages. These advantages include:

  • constructive notice to the public of the registrant's claim of ownership of the mark;
  • a legal presumption of the registrant's ownership of the mark and the registrant's exclusive right to use the mark nationwide on or in connection with the goods and/or services listed in the registration;
  • the ability to bring an action concerning the mark in federal court;
  • the use of the U.S. registration as a basis to obtain registration in foreign countries; and
  • the ability to file the U.S. registration with the U.S. Customs Service to prevent importation of infringing foreign goods.

Schwartz Law Firm is based in Charlotte, North Carolina with clients throughout the United States and internationally. Its founder and owner, Jeff Schwartz, has been selected by his peers as one of North Carolina's leading intellectual property lawyers, according to separate surveys taken by Law & Politics and Business North Carolina magazine.
