Trademark Registration for Restaurants

Trademark class 43 - restaurants & food services

Why do you need an attorney/advocate to register a trademark?

Trademark attorney assists a trademark holder or a potential trademark holder in every way possible by guidance and legal support. He also makes sure that the trademark he is applying for does not infringe with any other trademark holder. There are numerous reasons why a trademark applicant should consider engaging a trademark attorney to assist in the trademark prosecution. In fact, it is prudent to start working with trademark counsel in advance of the application filing to ensure the proper due diligence is conducted via a trademark clearance search.
