Building a brand is your dream, but safeguarding it requires careful navigation through the legal landscape. The question of attorney involvement in trademark protection can leave you scratching your head. Let’s unravel the mystery and empower you to make the best decision for your brand.

The Attorney Requirement:

➡️ Mandatory for Non-U.S. Residents: If you reside outside the United States and its territories, hiring a U.S.-licensed attorney is non-negotiable. They serve as your legal representative before the USPTO, ensuring your application meets all requirements.

➡️ Not Required, but Beneficial: For U.S. residents, engaging a trademark attorney is optional. However, there are situations where their expertise becomes crucial. Specifically, if your case involves proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB), representation by a U.S.-licensed attorney is mandatory. The TTAB handles disputes and appeals related to trademarks, requiring specialized legal skills and knowledge.

But here’s where TrademarkRite steps in:
