Why Do I Need a Federal Trademark Registration in Florida
Trademarks normally increase in value with length of use, marketing campaign, sales, and online presence in today’s world. Because trademarks have become intertwined with the brand, they are often the most valuable pieces of intellectual property a company can own. They are symbols of the enterprise, creating goodwill for the business or organization and set a business apart from competitors. In a highly competitive marketplace, the trademark may be more valuable than the actual service or product. The trademark is vital to not only growing the business but the trademark owner’s continued success.
Trademarks are governed by state law and the federal Lanham Act, which allow trademark owners to claim exclusive rights to use and register all protectable marks. Under Federal Law, certain attorneys can represent businesses in all 50 states and US territories. Our Florida trademark attorney has the qualifications to represent you and protect your intellectual property rights. Fill out the online application and get your trademark registration underway in 3-5 business days.
