Are we clear? That’s the first question brand managers around the world want to know. Trademark in-use investigations are about clarity. Trademark lawyers come to us to clarify the vagaries of international search reports. At Marksmen, we’re experts at gathering facts to help you assess all issues pertaining to trademark in-use investigations: avenues of trade, distribution channels, first use, geographic scope, specific goods associated with a trademark as well as federal, state, common law and multi-national registrations. We go beyond search engine results and combing databases by also making discreet calls directly to the target entities to get a more complete answer.
Trademark in-use investigations are billed at a flat rate if the address of the entity is known and located within the United States or Canada. All other trademark in-use investigations are billed hourly.
