A lot of people dread the idea of formally registering their intellectual properties due to the possible complexity of the process. Some of them either don’t want to put out money or don’t have the money to make the registration happen. What if a brand and trademark lawyer can make it happen to spare the applicant from the tedious process?
Kendra Stephen is an existing brand and trademark lawyer who has been in the licensing business for quite some time. Her rich experience and tenacity give her clients the confidence that they can entrust their licensing journey in her able hands. She manages and protects brands on behalf of her clients that include corporations, entrepreneurs, entertainers, professional athletes, influencers, and media personalities.
The trademark registration costs $699 with an additional filing fee of $275. This is inclusive of a comprehensive federal, state, and common law trademark search. Should there be a conflict involving the first comprehensive trademark search, a complimentary second attempt is automatically given to the client. The registration package also includes a telephone consultation with a trademark lawyer regarding the results of the search and the status of the application.
Furthermore, Stephen and her team take care of the drafting and filing of the client’s federal trademark application. The team works together to ensure that the application is ready in the agreed period. When it comes to trademark registration, after all, time is of the essence. Once it is filed in the U.S. government, Stephen and her team will be responsible for tracking the progress of the application. Once the firm receives the certificate from the government, it will immediately mail the document to the client’s preferred address.
One of Stephen’s primary reasons why she chose to specialize in brand and trademark registration is because a lot of people suffer from their ideas and creations being stolen. She is specifically concerned about the plight of a lot of black Americans. Their intellectual properties were attributed to someone else, mainly because they failed to register their trademark. It could have easily been avoided had there been someone to give them legal advice.
In other instances, some creators overlook the importance of trademark registration. Most of them realize the need too late. The worst-case scenario often leads to costly litigations and loss of potential income. What should have been a groundbreaking breakthrough for a person turned out to be a liability.
It is Stephen’s job to protect the interests of her clients. Part of what she does is to educate possible clients on the importance of trademark registration. She believes that transparency will enable her clients to make sound decisions concerning their intellectual property. Her goal is to empower her clients to actively protect what is rightfully theirs.
Start-up business owners should also be careful about getting their intellectual properties licensed. People and organizations are always on the lookout for fresh and innovative ideas. When they see something they want, they go for it. It is best to be prepared to avoid future complications.
