It is taking on average 12-18 months for an application to mature to registration. New applications were filed in record numbers in 2021 and the USPTO is still continuing to work through this surge of filings
Yes, the Trademark Clearance Search is NOT required by law. But, it is very strongly recommended. We will require you to sign a Waiver acknowledging the risk.
A Knock Out Search is not the same as a full comprehensive Trademark Clearance Search. The Knock Out search does not cover state trademarks and trade name registrations, unregistered common law trademarks, internet domain names, and other possible sources of prior trademark usage by other parties.
Trademark rights in the United States are based on use in the United States. While the USPTO Examiners only concern themselves with prior marks on the USPTO Register, our concern as a Trademark Attorney is to provide you with advice as to whether you can not only register, but also use a mark in interstate commerce. We strongly recommend that you also obtain a Full Comprehensive Clearance Search so that we can properly counsel and clear the mark by further examining State Trademarks and Common Law (unregistered use), to understand what trademark rights might already exist.
What is AI Technology? We commission a third-party specialized Trademark Research Company that has utilized artificial intelligence to develope the world's most sophisticated trademark similarity algorithm. The trademark search algorithm has been developed by a team of mathematicians, linguists and computer scientists.
Why is it cheaper? The search report uses a machine instead of a human for many tasks.
How accurate is AI Technology? Statistically proven it is said to find more than 99% of confusingly similar trademarks.
Time is of the essence. Trademark Search results are only a snapshot in time and will quickly lose their relevance ( i.e. a third party may obtain rights in an identical or a confusingly similar mark between the search results and the time when the first application is filed). Therefore, it is highly recommended to file your application immediately following or as soon as possible. Waiting to file your Trademark Application is risky and may result in additional costs to perform an updated search.
The USPTO divides marks into 45 different categories; 34 for products and 11 for services. These categories are known as classes. Here are the USPTO Filing Classes. In order to be fully protected, you will want to file in every class you’re eligible for.

What is a Substantive Office Action?
A substantive office action is one that requires in-depth legal research and/or persuasive legal argument. Substantive Office Actions are NOT included in any Tradmark Packages.
