Preguntas Frecuentes

 

Jeremy Peter Green Eche attended Northwestern University School of Law on a full tuition scholarship.

We're a small law firm and sometimes we get sick or bogged down in litigation. We aim for a one-week turnaround time, but it may take us as long as or longer than two weeks to give you a major update, whether that means that we have a legal opinion for you, that we’ve filed your trademark application, or that we need more information. For packages that include a search and legal opinion, we generally file the application within two weeks after you’ve given us consent to file. After we’ve filed, we will email you to let you know, with proof-of-filing attached.
 
Si necesita que la solicitud se presente inmediatamente, elija cualquiera de nuestros paquetes y agregue nuestra opción de solicitud acelerada por $150 para nuestro paquete Básico o $300 para nuestros paquetes Valor y Seguro en nuestro formulario.
 
Once the application is submitted, we should hear an initial answer from the USPTO after four (4) months, though lately they've been taking about six (6) months because of a high volume of trademark applications. If everything goes right, you should have a fully registered trademark in 9 to 12 months, at which point you can stop using the TM symbol and start using the ® symbol next to your brand.

No, most of our clients do not need to have any documents ready. You do not need any business formation documents or sales invoices in order to register a trademark in the US. If we do need any documents from you, we’ll ask you for them after you’ve retained us.
 
Toda la información que necesitamos de usted se solicita en nuestro formulario en línea, and it’s pretty basic information (what word/logo/slogan you want to register, what goods/services you want to register them for, what your mailing address is, etc.).

You can use the TM symbol whenever you want (even before filing a trademark application). The TM symbol simply means that you consider yourself to have “common law” rights to your trademark, and it has very little legal significance. In the United States, you can only use the ® symbol next to your trademark when it is fully registered at the federal level, which is what we help you with.
 
While your mark will not be fully protected until you’ve reached registration, you do gain two things on the day you file your trademark application. First, your application will have priority over any trademark application that has a later filing date than yours. Second, once you do reach registration, you will have retroactive trademark protection going back to the day you filed your application, meaning you can threaten anybody who started using an infringing mark after you filed your application, even if they started using it before you actually reached registration.

La protección de marcas dura el tiempo que usted esté utilizando la marca en el comercio, que podría ser cientos de años si lo desea. De cinco a seis años después del registro, tiene que presentar un documento de mantenimiento que muestre que está usando la marca en el comercio en los Estados Unidos. Cuatro años después de eso, y luego cada 10 años, usted tiene que renovar su registro. Como parte de cualquiera de nuestros paquetes de marcas comerciales, hacemos todo lo posible para informar a los clientes cuando estos plazos se acercan sin costo adicional. Nuestro formulario de mantenimiento y renovación de marcas registradas está aquí. We will try to remind you when your maintenance and renewal deadlines are coming up, but it’s not something we can guarantee because they’re so far in the future.

JPG Legal utiliza un potente software de búsqueda especializado para ayudarnos a asesorarlo sobre la viabilidad de la marca comercial propuesta. Nuestro software busca automáticamente coincidencias parciales, variaciones ortográficas, equivalentes fonéticos, traducciones y otras causas comunes de rechazo. Este software busca en la base de datos de marcas registradas de la USPTO, así como en varias bases de datos de derecho consuetudinario.
 
However, the search that comes with the Value and Safe packages is valuable not because the attorney searches a specialized database (or Google) and tells you if the name you want is taken — it’s valuable because the attorney uses their experience to advise you when the situation is unclear. We know what to search for and how to identify whether any existing trademarks and brands are problems.
 
Often it’s not the exact phrase being used that’s the issue, but rather a similar phrase, partial match, phonetic equivalent, spelling variation, or translation in a related, but not identical, industry.
 
Clients also frequently don’t realize that one of the words in their name is descriptive or generic in their industry, thus reducing the distinctiveness of their brand name. For example, if you’re a furniture company with the brand name SASSYCHAIR, the USPTO will consider SASSY the more significant part of your brand when they analyze your trademark application. If all words in your mark are considered descriptive or generic, you may not be able to reach registration at all, even if there are no similar trademarks in the database.
 
We give you a summary of the potential issues with the trademark, and break it down to an estimated percent chance of reaching registration. We also evaluate whether you’re likely to be sued for using the name.
 
Note that the Basic package (filing and responses to minor office actions with no search) is meant for people who are already heavily invested in their brand names, have been selling their product for years, know that they’re not going to change it at this point, and for whatever reason don’t have a large enough legal budget to pick the Safe package (which includes responses to major office actions).
 
  

Aceptamos tarjetas de crédito/débito y PayPal. Si desea pagar por algún otro método, como transferencia bancaria, háganoslo saber en un correo electrónico.

Sí. Siempre y cuando usted esté representado por un abogado con licencia estadounidense (como nosotros), no hay absolutamente ningún problema con el uso de una dirección de domicilio extranjera o dirección comercial extranjera para una solicitud de marca comercial de los Estados Unidos. Puede presentar como individuo extranjero o como entidad comercial extranjera. No se requiere ningún costo adicional o papeleo para personas extranjeras. Empiece ahora mismo.
 
If you want us to use a foreign trademark application or registration as the basis for registering our application here in the United States, we charge an additional fee of $50 per class because of the additional time we need to spend on such applications making sure the goods/services identifications are altered to be compatible with the U.S. Trademark Identification Manual. We’ll send you a separate online invoice for this fee after you’ve enviado nuestro formulario, si indica que desea utilizar una solicitud/registro extranjero como base de presentación.

Either way is fine, but there are some advantages to filing with an LLC or other business entity listed as the owner of the trademark. Filing with a business entity is helpful because you won’t have to re-assign ownership of the trademark if you sell the business to somebody else.
 
Filing as a business entity is also good for individuals who do not wish for their personal details to be made public. Several websites “crawl” the USPTO trademark database, ensuring that applicants who file as individuals have their names, mailing addresses, and countries of citizenship listed prominently on Google and other search engines in connection with their trademark.
 
Ofrecemos servicios instantáneos de formación de entidades comerciales en nuestra página de servicios de negocios if you are interested in forming a U.S. LLC or corporation. As soon as you’ve requested an entity formation from us, you may then list that entity’s details on formulario de marca comercial.
 

Si desea asignar/transferir los derechos de su marca más adelante, cobramos $250 para redactar y personalizar un documento de asignación de marca comercial para usted y registrarlo con la USPTO, más una tarifa de presentación de solicitud de $50 por marca comercial.

Hay dos razones principales:
 
1. Facilidad de adquisición de clientes. Most attorneys have a difficult time acquiring clients. They spend a lot of time and money attempting to acquire clients and they try to bill their existing clients for as many little tasks as they can in order to make a living from a relatively small book of clients. The attorneys who do have plenty of clients have spent decades networking and tend to bill at “partner” rates of anywhere from $500 to $1500 an hour because this is how the legal profession rewards them for acquiring enough clients to make themselves rich and provide livings for the associates working under them. JPG Legal has no trouble acquiring clients so we don’t worry about maximizing our revenue from each individual client the way other firms do.
 
2. Trademarking doesn’t actually take that much time. It simply doesn’t take much time to perform a conflict search or file a trademark application. The client is paying our attorneys for experience and expertise, not time. Traditional trademark attorneys waste a lot of time and bill their clients for it, primarily because of the fore-mentioned difficulty traditional attorneys have in acquiring clients. Because we work efficiently and have plenty of clients, we can charge 25-50% of what other trademark attorneys charge and manage to earn a good net hourly rate. Puede leer más sobre nuestro modelo de negocio aquí.

Yes. Call us at (917) 268-7054. However, our business model primarily involves communicating by email, so that’s our preferred method of communication whenever possible. Most attorneys love speaking on the phone because they bill their clients for the time spent on the phone. On the other end of the spectrum, “legal services” companies don’t charge for phone calls because they have underpaid, under-qualified customer service representatives answering their phones.
 
We offer unlimited phone time for our clients (and prospective clients) at no cost, but we hope that clients understand that we are able to keep our fees low because we’ve managed to digitize most of our processes. If we are having trouble returning your call because we have upcoming deadlines or a deluge of tasks during a particular week, we urge you to put your thoughts into an email if possible. Also note that though you may call us at any time, as a policy we do not schedule phone calls ahead of time.

The Basic package (filing and monitoring with no search) is meant for people who are already heavily invested in their brand names, have been selling their product for years, know that they’re not going to change it at this point, and for whatever reason don’t have a large enough legal budget to pick the Safe package (which includes responses to major office actions).
 
The search that comes with the Value and Safe packages is valuable not because the attorney searches a database (or Google) and tells you if the name you want is taken — it’s valuable because the attorney uses their experience to advise you when the situation is unclear. We know what to search for and how to identify whether any existing trademarks and brands are problems.
 
Often it’s not the exact phrase being used that’s the issue, but rather a similar phrase, partial match, phonetic equivalent, spelling variation, or translation in a related, but not identical, industry.
 
Clients also frequently don’t realize that one of the words in their name is descriptive or generic in their industry, thus reducing the distinctiveness of their brand name. For example, if you’re a furniture company with the brand name SASSYCHAIR, the USPTO will consider SASSY the more significant part of your brand when they analyze your trademark application. If all words in your mark are considered descriptive or generic, you may not be able to reach registration at all, even if there are no similar trademarks in the database.
 
We give you a summary of the potential issues with the trademark, and break it down to an estimated percent chance of reaching registration. We also evaluate whether you’re likely to be sued for using the name.
 
  

An “Office Action” is a refusal or rejection issued by the USPTO for a trademark application. Most Office Actions are “minor” or “procedural” Office Actions, meaning the USPTO examiner needs a relatively minor amendment made to the trademark application, such as a word disclaimer, a translation, a change to the goods/services classification, or a new specimen. Most trademark service providers with low initial fees earn a large portion of their revenue by charging additional fees to handle these types of Office Actions. JPG Legal responds to these Office Actions for free as part of any of our packages.
 
Some Office Actions are more “substantive” rather than procedural, though, and the only way to have even a reasonable chance of overturning them is by having an attorney research, draft, and file a legal argument (also known as a legal brief) in response to the rejection. We call these “major” office actions. The most common reasons for these rejections are likelihood of confusion with an existing trademark registration, mere descriptiveness or genericness of the words in the proposed trademark, or that the proposed trademark is “merely a surname”. Some major Office Actions include a combination of these rejections (for example, a client’s application for ELECTRIC APPLE for headphones may be rejected because ELECTRIC is descriptive/generic, thus needing to be disclaimed, and the word APPLE by itself is confusingly similar to an existing trademark registration owned by Apple Computers, Inc.).
 
Only the Safe package includes the researching, drafting, and filing of legal arguments in response to major Office Actions. Normally we charge a flat fee of $850 to put together one of these arguments, because it takes time. Not only do these arguments cost a lot, but they’re only successful maybe 50% of the time. The Safe package is a sort of insurance policy that our clients can purchase before we perform our search, ensuring that if the trademark application is rejected, JPG Legal will be able to take any action necessary to overturn the refusal without cost being a factor.
 
For Basic and Value package clients who receive a major office action, the $850 full-length argument option is available, but we also offer a shorter argument for $350. The shorter argument is about one page long, doesn’t involve significant legal research, and makes use of arguments that we’ve used in the past and that we know are likely to be successful. It’s not as effective as the full-length argument that is included with the Safe package, but still sometimes succeeds at overturning major office actions (maybe 35% of the time).

Yes, but it will be a little more expensive than if you had gotten the Safe package from the start. To upgrade from the Value package to the Safe package after we’ve given you legal advice about your mark, just ask us and we’ll send you an online invoice for $400, which includes the $300 fee difference plus a $100 upgrade charge.
 
Esta opción de subir de paquete no está  disponible una vez que la USPTO haya emitido una Acción Oficial Mayor en contra de la solicitud (regularmente esto significa una Acción Oficial que rechaza el registro debido a una probabilidad de confusión con una marca existente o que las palabras en la marca sean meramente descriptivas). En ese momento, se requerirá el costo total si desea que redactemos y presentemos un informe legal para intentar anular una Acción Oficial Mayor. Por el momento, nuestra tarifa para esto es de $850.

It’s not as effective as the full-length argument that is included with the Safe package, but still sometimes succeeds at overturning major office actions (maybe 35% of the time).

Normally we charge a flat fee of $850 to draft and file a response to a major office action that requires a legal argument, e.g. a refusal based on a likelihood of confusion with an existing mark. This price applies whether you're having us take over an application you already filed, or if you had us file the application originally, but not using the Safe package.

Filing both a name/word mark and a logo requires two separate applications, but JPG Legal only charges an additional $250 legal fee on top of extra $350 filing fee, as long as the name and logo are for the same brand, meaning that if you want to trademark both the name and logo, you will need to pay an additional $600 in total if you’re registering your trademark for one class of goods/services.
 
Para la mayoría de las empresas, lo más importante para la marca es su nombre en texto sin formato. El registro del logotipo normalmente debe hacerse como una solicitud de marca separada. Técnicamente puede ahorrar dinero y proteger tanto su nombre como su logotipo registrando el logotipo si contiene el nombre dentro de él, pero esto no se recomienda porque si alguna vez cambia el diseño de su logotipo, correrá el riesgo de perder la protección federal para el nombre. Puede elegir si desea registrar una palabra/frase, un logotipo o ambos utilizando nuestro formulario en línea.
 
Tenga en cuenta que, si usted presenta solicitud para un nombre o logotipo y luego desea presentar solicitud para el otro, JPG Legal cobrará la tarifa legal con descuento si se paga dentro de los seis meses de la presentación de la solicitud original. De lo contrario, lo trataremos como un paquete de marcas separado.

It’s important for Amazon sellers to register their brands as trademarks. We work with many Amazon sellers around the world and file all trademark applications in a way that Amazon and the Amazon Brand Registry recognize, as a standard character mark. All clients also receive proof of filing immediately after we file the application, and will be updated on the progress of the application as it proceeds toward registration.
 
Additionally, when you apply for Amazon Brand Registry using a trademark application we filed for you, we will respond to Amazon’s trademark ownership verification email at no additional cost to you.

Our  Nuestro formulario de marca ofrece la opción de contratarnos solamente para una búsqueda (y la opinión legal adjunta) por $399. Si los resultados de esa búsqueda son en gran parte negativos, puede pedir que realicemos una segunda búsqueda y le demos una segunda opinión legal de forma gratuita.
 
Si un cliente de Search-and-Legal-Opinion-Only desea actualizarse al paquete Value después de que hayamos dado una opinión legal, cobramos una tarifa de actualización adicional de $100 además de la diferencia de precio. Si desean actualizarse al paquete Safe, cobramos una tarifa de actualización de $150 además de la diferencia de precio. En otras palabras, para actualizar del paquete de solo búsqueda al paquete Value, el cliente debe pagar la diferencia de $300, más $100, más la tarifa de presentación ($350 por una clase). Para actualizar desde el paquete Solo de búsqueda al paquete Seguro, el cliente debe pagar la diferencia de $600, más $150, más la tarifa de presentación.

If you change your mind about filing a trademark application after we perform a conflict search for you (or after we perform both the first conflict search and the free backup conflict search), you are entitled to a partial refund. For the Value package, we will keep $299 for the conflict search and will refund the remaining professional and filing fees to you. For the Safe package, we will keep $349. Any additional fees paid to add logos or goods/services classes on will also be refunded. If you ordered the trademark document bundle, that $75 fee will not be refunded. If you paid $300 for an expedited Value or Safe package, you’ll get $150 of that back. JPG Legal will also keep an additional $35 in the event of any refund of more than 50% of your original payment. This is meant to cover approximate payment processing fees, which the firm does not recover if a refund is issued.

Si nuestras opiniones legales tanto para su primera opción de marca comercial como para su segunda opción de marca comercial le hacen querer explorar una tercera marca comercial, puede solicitar un paquete de dos búsquedas/opiniones de marcas más por un total de $200.

Si ya está utilizando la marca en el comercio, encontramos su sitio web o listado en línea nosotros mismos y tomamos una captura de pantalla como evidencia de uso. En el raro escenario en el que no encontremos esta prueba, le pediremos una fotografía de su producto o materiales publicitarios.
 
If you are not using the trademark in commerce yet, we’ll most likely need to file the application under an  

Llene uno de nuestros formularios de marca para cada marca.
 
If you want to register several trademarks at once, we offer a “bulk” discount for three or more trademark packages purchased within a few weeks of each other. This discount is applied as a partial refund/rebate after the third purchase and each further purchase within a short timeframe, in the amount of 20% of the average legal fee (not including the filing fee) of the all of the packages. Note that the discounts are not applied to the first and second packages.
 
Por ejemplo, si nos contrata para cinco de nuestros paquetes Valor en un corto período de tiempo, a una tarifa legal normal de $699 cada uno, su tercer, cuarto y quinto paquete tendrán cada uno un reembolso parcial de aproximadamente $140 aplicado (20% de $699), por un descuento total de $420. La mejor forma de contratarnos de esta manera es usar nuestro formulario en línea una vez para cada paquete de marca comercial, mencionando que desea el descuento por varios paquetes en la sección "Notas Adicionales" de su formulario, la tercera vez que envíe el formulario. formulario en línea once for each trademark package, mentioning that you want bulk pricing in the “Additional Notes” section of your form, the third time you submit the form.

Yes, you can file for more than one class of goods/services. The USPTO charges an additional full filing fee for each class, and we charge a small amount to cover payment processing and labor, so you’ll have to pay an additional $350 total fee for each extra class ($250-$350 goes to the government and the rest, if any, goes to payment processing fees and labor). If you want to file an application for more than one class, we can probably figure that out from the list of goods/services you enter on our form, or you may want to mention this in the “Additional Notes” section of formulario de marca comercial. Our form will not charge you for more than one class, so we’ll have to send you a separate online invoice for the extra classes after you’ve submitted the form. We will not file for multiple classes without asking you first.
 
Aquí está una lista de las 45 clases de marcas registradas.
 
Here is the USPTO’s goods/services identification search engine, where you can find out in what class a specific good or service fits.
 
Most of our clients don’t need more than one class. While legal classes and categories of goods can be fairly specific sometimes (and surprisingly general at other times), trademark protections in the United States are fairly broad. If you own a federal trademark for your brand name for pillows and bedsheets, you will almost definitely win a lawsuit against a competitor who steals your brand name to sell mattress toppers.
 
Los jueces y examinadores de marcas, en su análisis de los posibles casos de infracción de marcas, se preguntan si los consumidores podrían pensar que ambas marcas proceden de la misma fuente. Un consumidor razonable asumiría que una empresa llamada KOALA SLEEP que vende colchonetas es la misma entidad que una empresa llamada KOALA SLEEP que vende sábanas y almohadas. Así que, en este caso, el KOALA SLEEP que llegó primero ganaría.

A diferencia de la mayoría de los bufetes de abogados y los servicios de registro de marcas registradas, JPG Legal no cobra ninguna tarifa para responder a acciones menores de la oficina de la USPTO. This means that if the USPTO has an issue with our trademark application that doesn’t require a legal argument, we will respond to it without charging you for that time and labor, regardless of which trademark package you hired us for. This includes things like amendments of goods/services IDs, disclaimers, Supplemental Register amendments, name consents, translations, product inquiries, and other minor changes or requests the USPTO might have during the trademark application process.
 
If you want to file for products in more than one class of good, you’ll have to pay an additional $350 filing fee per class (this covers government fee, payment processing, and additional labor), which we will send you a separate invoice for after you envíe el formulario. Una clase es generalmente suficiente para la mayoría de las pequeñas empresas. Consulte la pregunta anterior para obtener más información.
 
Además, si no está utilizando la marca en el comercio para todos los productos en su aplicación el día que presentemos, tendremos que presentar bajo una base de finalidad de uso. Esto significa que, si la solicitud es exitosa, usted tendrá que pagar una tarifa de presentación de $175 ($100 tarifa del gobierno más $75 tarifa por procesamiento y tiempo invertido) por clase de bien/servicio cerca del final del proceso de solicitud con el fin de completar el registro. Si ya está utilizando el nombre de marca o logotipo en el comercio cuando presentamos, no tendrá que pagar esta tarifa.
 
If you want us to use a foreign trademark application or registration as the basis for registering our application here in the United States, we charge an additional fee of $50 per class because of the additional time we need to spend on such applications making sure the goods/services identifications are altered to be compatible with the U.S. Trademark Identification Manual. We’ll send you a separate online invoice for this fee after you’ve enviado nuestro formulario, si indica que desea utilizar una solicitud/registro extranjero como base de presentación.
 
Tenga en cuenta que ninguno de nuestros paquetes cubre los costos de litigio si un tercero se opone a la solicitud o envía una carta de desistimiento debido a la solicitud. Manejamos alguna comunicación inicial con terceros opositores, pero más allá de eso, tendremos que cobrar nuestra tarifa por hora de $290, facturada en décimas de hora. Le avisaremos y obtendremos su consentimiento antes de cobrar nuestra tarifa por hora. Ninguno de nuestros paquetes cubre apelaciones formales ante la Comisión de Oposiciones y Apelaciones de Marcas (TTAB), en caso de que nuestro argumento contra una Acción Oficial sea rechazado.

MarkHound Watch es un servicio de suscripción que ofrecemos a través del cual puede pedirnos que supervisemos la base de datos USPTO para ver si hay nuevas solicitudes que se asemejen a su marca comercial, y le avisemos cuando encontremos algo objetable. Si solicita nuestro paquete Seguro, se incluye una suscripción a MarkHound Watch de un año de forma gratuita. Esta membresía no está vinculada a la solicitud de marca que nos contrata para presentar. Usted puede elegir cualquier marca para que supervisemos, en cualquier momento, independientemente del estado de la solicitud que nos contrató para presentar.

You generally should not copyright a brand name. Brand names should be registered as trademarks, not copyrights. Logos should also be registered as trademarks because they are brand identifiers. You can copyright a logo, but that's much less useful than registering it as a trademark.


*Para las solicitudes de nuevas marcas registradas, JPG Legal cobra una tarifa de presentación fija de $350 por clase además de las tarifas de nuestro paquete. Las tarifas de presentación del gobierno oscilan entre $250 y $350 por clase. El tipo de solicitud de $250 requiere más precisión y esfuerzo que el tipo de solicitud de $350, por lo que en situaciones en las que JPG Legal usa el tipo de solicitud de $250, los $100 restantes se utilizan para cubrir la mano de obra y las tarifas de procesamiento de pagos. Ocasionalmente, la USPTO cobrará una multa de $100 si una solicitud de $250 no cumple con todos los requisitos para la tarifa más baja, que también está cubierta por la tarifa de presentación de $350 que paga el cliente.

Republic Restoratives

Republic Restoratives, una destilería operada por mujeres basada en Washington D.C, quería dedicar un whiskey a las mujeres que las inspiraron. Sin embargo, la Oficina de Patentes y Marcas de los Estados Unidos no estuvo de acuerdo con su visión y rechazó su solicitud de marca por "llevar el nombre una persona viva".

Afortunadamente, Jeremy Peter Green Eche era su abogado de marcas. Rápidamente redactó y presentó una Respuesta a Acción Oficial, citando varios precedentes y estatutos, y el rechazo fue anulado. Ahora Rodham Rye se vende en una multitud de tiendas alrededor de la costa este de los Estados Unidos.

El registro de marcas de Amazon ahora acepta solicitudes de marcas comerciales pendientes

Si usted ha estado husmeando por aquí, probablemente ha reunido que yo mismo diseñé y desarrollé el sitio web de JPG Legal, usando HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Adobe Photoshop y algunas potentes plataformas y plugins. Aunque no lo incorporé hasta un año más tarde, tenía 28 años cuando comencé JPG Legal como práctica independiente a finales del verano de 2016, justo después de vender ClintonKaine.com por $15,000.


Como se puede ver en la captura de pantalla anterior, tuve un sitio web bastante árido hace un año. Me acababa de diseñar un logotipo en Adobe Photoshop, y jpg.legal era simplemente un listado en línea para las personas que habían oído hablar de mí a través de referencias personales y querían ponerse en contacto conmigo. Tenía licencia en Nueva York, vivía en Washington, D.C., y estaba esperando a que llegara mi papeleo de la Barra de D.C., así que me sentí incómodo con la idea de promoverme activamente en línea.

El Negocio de Recesión es Bueno, pero el Negocio Pegajoso Es Mejor

Los últimos meses han confirmado algo que he pensado durante años, pero no había podido estar totalmente seguro hasta ahora: JPG Legal es un negocio de recesión. Somos la marca económica que la gente compra en el supermercado cuando su marca preferida empieza a parecer exorbitante. Cada vez más pequeñas y medianas empresas están cavando para ahorrar y deshaciéndose de sus abogados convencionales por nuestras tarifas más bajas y precios transparentes.

El año pasado mi objetivo era terminar 2019 con más de $1 millón en ingresos, un número que alcanzamos a mediados de diciembre. Este año pasamos un millón de dólares a mediados de julio, en camino a terminar 2020 en alrededor de $1.9 millones. Hace menos de dos años esta firma era sólo mi práctica independiente, y ahora estamos a punto de ser seis de nosotros: yo, tres abogados, un asistente legal, y un asistente legal que comenzará aquí en agosto. Tras una breve caída de los ingresos en marzo cuando el ecosistema empresarial global se estaba adaptando a las condiciones cambiantes, nuestros ingresos mensuales han continuado su tendencia hacia arriba.

Our March 2020 Weekly Revenue Numbers Show When Businesses Started Freaking out Around the World

It’s been about five or six weeks since the COVID-19 pandemic suddenly started having a large impact on businesses in the U.S. and the rest of the world. JPG Legal’s clientele is about 50% U.S.-based and 50% international, representing virtually every industry, so our revenue serves as a sort of microcosm of the global economy.

Our monthly gross revenue for March ended up at $123,538, down from February’s record monthly revenue of $143,478. But when March is broken down into two halves, the numbers are much scarier.

La nueva regla de la USPTO: ¿Qué deben hacer los solicitantes de marcas extranjeras con sus marcas existentes?

A principios de este verano, la USPTO anunció una nueva regla que exige que todos los solicitantes y registrados de marcas domiciliados en el extranjero deben estar representados por un abogado con licencia estadounidense. Esta regla se aplica a cualquier solicitante "cuya residencia legal permanente o lugar de negocios principal se encuentra fuera de los Estados Unidos".
