Please do not underestimate the value of a trademark search. While optional, it is important to know the full extent of any possible use of your mark prior to filing a trademark application. It is not uncommon that some third party has already registered your mark or has certain common law rights to use the mark that you wish to register. Additionally, assuming the search reflects that your mark is already registered, investing in a trademark search will have saved you both the trademark application preparation fee as well as the trademark filing fees. To request a trademark search please complete our Secure Order Form.

There are a variety of trademark searches available. Unless otherwise specified, each search takes approximately three (3) business days to complete. However, these searches can be also expedited for an additional charge. A word of caution, at any given time the information in any of the various searchable databases can be between one (1) to (3) months old and sometimes more. Here is a quick summary of the available searches:
