Forming a small business is a difficult process to get through successfully. Once you have chosen your company name, how you would like to form your entity, either through a partnership, sole proprietorship, or limited liability company, and what state you would like to begin in, you will then need to consider if you need to have trademark formation. A Texas intellectual property attorney can help you determine what are your available options and how to best proceed.
A trademark protects “intellectual property.” Those are protected through being registered, maintained, and enforced. There are differences between federal and state formations that deal directly with trademarks and business formations. Many small business owners are under the impression that all you will need to do to protect their name is do a business name check; however, this is not the case. There are many different steps involved with trademark cases, including pages of paperwork and specific deadlines that must be met. In order to have a successful case and the results you will want to see, you will need a Texas intellectual property attorney by your side from the beginning to the end of the entire process.
