Just recently, the number of registrations with my name attached to them in the public records of the USPTO surpassed 2,500. It is not possible (to my knowledge) to know precisely how many trademarks I have registered — the registrant could change USPTO records sometimes after the registration issued in some circumstances, while I have become counsel of record at the USPTO on some files after the registration has been granted.
Regardless, this is the first time the USPTO records have reflected more than 2,500 registered records associated with the name Erik Pelton®. Following my work as an Examiner for the USPTO, my first trademark in private practice was filed in December or 1999, nearly 17 years ago. In 2000, just 4 registrations were issued with my name as counsel. So far in 2016, more than 230 registration certificates have been granted by the USPTO to Erik M Pelton & Associates clients.
I have been fortunate to work with hundreds and hundreds of businesses from very small mom-and-pops, to large multi-million dollar sales companies. Clients have ranged from very local, in my neighborhood, to international from multiple countries around the world.
