I frequently advocate on this blog that we should practice what we preach. Many trademark law firms don’t have good slogans or logos. Many trademark law firms have not registered their trademarks with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
Not so here at Erik M. Pelton & Associates! Just added to our roster of registered trademarks: THE NONTRADITIONAL TRADEMARK LAWYERS®.
Get it? It is a double entendre, which makes for a fun, memorable and good trademark.
- Nontraditional trademarks are source indicating things that are not words or designs, such as sounds, colors, shapes, mascots, uniforms, packaging, and more.
- Nontraditional lawyers are different from traditional law firms. They use technology to provide more efficient services – the internet for research, email for communication, networks for document storage, and online systems for filing. They charge flat fees. They are smaller and nimble. They publish blogs, create apps, and use social media. They build and use proprietary software for managing dockets and deadlines. Their attorneys answer the phones and return messages promptly.
At Erik M. Pelton & Associates, we are nontraditional. And we have a great deal of experience protecting ‘nontraditional’ trademarks!
