Communication by Email, Website Forms or Chat

  1. Please note that communicating with anyone affiliated with TrademarkShoppe by email, website forms, chat, or telephone does not, in and of itself, create an attorney-client relationship. Furthermore, before we can represent anyone, we must conduct a conflict of interest check to ensure that we can ethically undertake the representation.
  2. Once we conduct a conflict of interest investigation, and confirm that we would have no conflict in undertaking representation, we will outline our terms of engagement in writing.
  3. Accordingly, please note that, if you ask us to conduct a comprehensive search and render an opinion on the availability of a trademark or service mark for use and registration, or ask us to file an application for federal registration of a trademark or service mark, or render any other legal service, we will first conduct a conflict of interest investigation, and will decline the representation if we have a conflict.
  4. Please do not send us any unsolicited information about representing you in a particular matter, other than the information you provide in our web-based forms, unless requested to do so by a TrademarkShoppe attorney or paralegal after we have confirmed the existence of an attorney-client relationship. Such unsolicited communication may not be considered confidential or protected under the attorney-client privilege.
  5. Similarly, emails and other communications you receive from us may be protected by the attorney-client privilege, as attorney work-product or by virtue of other privileges or provisions of law. If you are not an intended recipient, please do not read, copy, use, forward, or disclose any such communications or attachments to others; immediately notify the send by reply email; and delete the email and the reply from your system. Any unauthorized disclosure, copying, distribution, or use of emails from us or any attachments thereto is prohibited.

The materials and information presented in this website are not legal advice and should not be relied upon or construed as legal advice. Any views or opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect the view or opinion of TrademarkShoppe, its attorneys, or its clients. The information in this website does not create an attorney-client relationship.
  2. It should be appreciated that trademark law is complex and very subjective, especially in evaluating likelihood of confusion between two marks. It is possible that an Examining Attorney in the USPTO will not agree with your attorney’s assessment of likelihood of confusion, and there is no guarantee that any trademark or service mark will ultimately be found to be registrable.
  3. It should also be appreciated that searching for similar marks is very complex. It is dependent upon USPTO employees correctly adding information to the database, and it is also dependent upon complex comparison and weighting algorithms implemented by software. We can make no guarantee that all pertinent marks will be found in either a knockout or comprehensive search.
  4. The information provided in this website might be considered to constitute advertising in some jurisdictions. The hiring of an attorney is an important decision that should not be based solely upon the information provided in this website regarding the experience and qualifications of our attorneys. We do not intend or desire to represent any client based upon their review of any portion of this website that does not comply with the legal or ethical requirements for that client’s jurisdiction.
