    Hi all,

    I’m in the process of starting my business (focusing on smartphone application development). I’ve just finished getting my logo designed and now want to start the trademark registration process. I’m relatively new to the processes involved in getting a trademark registered so I would need quite a lot of assistance.

    I’m based in Melbourne, however I have a speech disability so if possible I would like all communication to be via e-mail.

    If anyone has any experience or recommendations for a reputable firm it would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    We use:

    Sherrie Heather
    Trade Marks Attorney Services
    http://www.trademarksattorneyservices.com.au

    Used several times over the last few years in various enterprisers and she is professional, to the point, and does not attract outrageous fees like so many others out there. Very good on the email front.

    PS – Her website is horrid. Obviously we did not build it for her ;-)

    Hi ds23,

    There are a couple of very knowledgeable trademark specialists on the forum – I’m sure they’ll be along shortly to put their hands up.

    In the meantime, you may also like to check this section of the Flying Solo directory.

    All the best,
    Jayne

    Hi ds23,

    I would be happy to help. I am also in Melbourne but email is fine with me if this is your preference.

    You can view my services, about me and testimonials at http://mmwtrademarks.com.au/about-us/ or shoot me an email – [email protected].

    If you want to include a copy of your logo on the email I will do a preliminary search for you at no charge. This will ensure your logo is available and registrable. I will provide you with a written report, which will include information on what needs to happen next.

    One of the key points to trademark registration is that you register in connection with the goods/services you intend to use your trademark to identify – ultimately you gain trademark rights in connection with those goods/services. If you could include a brief description of the type of products/services you will use your logo to ‘brand’ when you email, then I will be able to clearly identify and explain exactly what will be best for your logo’s protection.

    I look forward to hearing from you :)

    Hi Jayne – I like to think I am one of the knowledgeable trademark specialists you might be referring to ;) but for some reason my company is not in the section that you posted? If this is merely a category setting at my end, I would appreciate any assistance to explain how I update/fix it? Many thanks, Jacqui

    Hey Jacqui,

    If you go to your FS account, up top there’s a tab that says ‘directory listing’ – that’s how you put yourself in the directory.

    Which is probably what I should do too …

    Cheers,
    Victor
