Benefits of Your Trademark Package


Comprehensive Searches

We’ll make comprehensive trademark searches on your behalf, not just exact searches. Many people think if an exact search is available, they can use it. Not so.


Class Advice

We’ll help you know which of the 45 trademark classes you should choose for your trademark. Each class includes many trademark types, and the process of choosing one can be tedious.



We’ll represent you when you receive the usual office action rejections. We are able to argue your case more effectively and progress faster than you could alone because we are a creditable voice.


Easy Communication

We are open late at least one day a week so you don’t have to step away from work to get a trademark. You can contact us easily through text, email, virtually, or in person.

What can be trademarked?

  • Logos
  • Business names
  • Branded Product Names or Services (e.g. Microsoft Word Processor)

Office Action (Rejection Letters)

In our experience, every trademark application inevitably receives a rejection letter, formally called an office action. To overcome these, the applicant must argue their case with the USTPO through email. They will submit proof that their trademark is unique enough from existing trademarks to pass inspection. Let us handle office actions for you.

Need help with an office action? We have Bronze, Silver and Gold packages priced $495-995.

What if there was a professional solution that made the whole process easier and successful!

I had never had any experience as a business owner before. There were many worries and concerns when making the decision to buy a business. I came to Surge Business Law Firm just because I read good reviews from others and hoped this law firm could really help me/us. After our initial consultation, my partners and I decided to choose Surge Business Law Firm to help us set up our business and guide us through the purchasing process. Matt and Jacqueline did tremendous work to help us overcome the obstacles we faced. They were very proactive on checking for any harm to our business and finding ways to protect our business. Matt and Jacqueline had guided us through every small step to resolve all legal issues from the beginning process until closing. If you are new to setting up your business or need a legal assistant for your business, I would recommend Surge Business Law Firm to you. Like us, you can feel secure when choosing Surge Business Law Firm. They are also very friendly, responsive and fun to work with 🙂

As a lawyer myself, I never thought I’d say this, but even lawyers need a good lawyer. Especially when it comes to the wild world of tech startups. That’s where Matt Nuzum comes in.I was drowning in legal complexities and bad code, trying to salvage my legal tech startup. Developers had taken advantage, I’d lost money, and my dream seemed lost. But then I found Matt.He’s not just a lawyer; he’s a tech-savvy lawyer. He understood my situation, spoke my language (both legal and tech!), and offered clear, actionable advice. He didn’t just tell me what I couldn’t do; he helped me find a way forward.His guidance was invaluable. Matt wasn’t just professional, he was genuinely invested in my success. He took the time to understand my goals, my challenges, and my anxieties. He made me feel heard and supported, which is priceless in the chaotic world of startups.So, if you’re a lawyer, entrepreneur, or anyone navigating the intersection of technology and business, do yourself a favor and call Matt Nuzum. You won’t regret it!

I can’t say enough fantastic things about Matt and his service. We are beyond thankful and feel at ease knowing Matt is caring for us and our small business.
International trademark classes

Get your trademark approved without competition.

There are millions of trademarks on file with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Yours has to be different enough to stand out from them.

Knowing if a trademark name idea has been used is a true guessing game if you don’t know where to start. In addition, most trademark applicants initially get rejected by the USTPO!

Will your trademark be approved?

You don’t have to guess. You can know.

When we help get your trademark filed, we’ll do a full trademark search to make sure that your trademark name idea is distinct enough from those that already exist . Let us help get your trademark filed.

Class 25


Includes many types of human clothing including shoes, hats, outfits and parts of outfits like sportswear.

Class 9

Science & Computer

Includes computer software, technology products, visual equipment, and tools for research, science, info technology, rescue, and safety.

Class 35

Business & Advertising

Includes business services and marketing services for management, advertising, and organization for enterprises.

Are you ready to get started? We’ll give you simple instructions and clear direction to get the process started. Our team will take care of the details!

  1. We’ll meet and learn about what you’re trying to protect.
  2. We’ll do advanced searches including similar matches to their trademark name, slogan, phrase, logo, etc. to determine whether or not it likely will be accepted for registration by the USPTO.
  3. If it is likely to be accepted, we’ll register it for you.
  4. If it is not likely to be accepted for registration, we help you make a plan to change their trademark idea to something they can protect.
  5. There is usually a rejection notice with every trademark application. Don’t worry. As a business law firm, we have experience with this. Because of our credibility as a law firm, we have the authority to advance the process more quickly. We’ll respond to and help plead your case. This is commonly something that can be overcome.
  6. Once the USPTO is satisfied with our correspondence, you will have your trademark!
  • It’s important to do a trademark search because if you unknowingly use someone else’s trademark, you are at risk of being sued.
  • What would happen if you tried to process a trademark and office actions on your own? Honestly, it’s a lot like going to trial, but by email. You will need to prove to the USPTO that the trademark you are applying for is unique enough from other trademarked IP. You’ll send and receive emails answering questions and submitting evidence.

Why you should choose Iowa Business Lawyer over DIY and other lawyer options?
