Our platform is destined to change the way business owners, entrepreneurs, savvy marketing professionals and even in-house counsel work with their legal team to file trademark applications.
SANTA MONICA, Calif. (PRWEB) April 05, 2016
AKeyMark is pleased to launch the beta version of a new online platform that enables people to hire a trademark legal team to prepare and file a trademark application for a flat rate of $399, plus government filing fees.
For a limited time during beta testing, the public can receive access to the website to have a trademark application prepared and filed for a $250 service fee, plus applicable government filing fees. In addition, AKeyMark will be showcased at the Silicon Beach Expo at Loyola Marymount University in Playa Del Rey, Calif. on April 8.
AKeyMark is a patent-pending platform that combines the ease and efficiency of an online trademark form with the added benefit of an expert trademark paralegal and attorney team that reviews and files trademark applications. AKeyMark does not itself offer legal services. Instead, it is an all-inclusive communication tool that people can use to more efficiently engage and work with their legal team and reduce their cost, rather than hiring an attorney directly. Less comprehensive online legal platforms, in contrast, offer little to no access to legal guidance. Essentially, AKeyMark bridges the gap between self-filing trademark application systems and traditional attorney representation. “Our platform is destined to change the way business owners, entrepreneurs, savvy marketing professionals and even in-house counsel work with their legal team to file trademark applications,” says Founder and Chief Executive Officer Kenneth L. Sherman, Managing Partner of Sherman IP LLP.
A skilled trademark attorney can provide tremendous value by ensuring that the client’s trademark application aligns with their business strategy and goals, as well as ensure that their application is properly completed and filed to satisfy trademark registration requirements, according to Sherman. In fact, trademarks filed by experienced trademark attorneys are 50 percent more likely to get registered at the trademark office than those filed by inexperienced filers. “AKeyMark only connects clients with qualified, vetted expert trademark attorneys,” Sherman says. “They don’t work on divorces, and they don’t write wills; they specialize in trademarks.”
So exactly how does AKeyMark work? The interactive website offers a straightforward process that begins with users completing a simple five-minute questionnaire. Then the questionnaire undergoes an extensive, proprietary audit, the “AKeyMark Audit,” conducted by a trademark-specific paralegal, who evaluates it for accuracy, completeness and proper formatting. After the AKeyMark Audit is satisfied, the platform then provides a scheduled consultation for the user with their expert trademark attorney who finalizes the application for filing. The trademark attorney verifies the Audit results, gathers any further information necessary to best understand and protect the client’s business, and ensures that the trademark application is filed in the best position possible for approval by the United States Trademark Office.
