The United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) is a government agency and a branch in the U.S. Department of Commerce. The primary role of the USPTO is to register trademarks and grant patents for the protection of inventions. As a government agency it serves the interests of businesses and inventors with respect to their products and inventions as well as service identifications.
Moreover, the USPTO is a government agency that by its very nature is important to the public interest. The agency has a duty to disclose their records as a means of public information for all to have and access. Because ultimately through the public dissemination of patent and trademark information the USPTO aids and encourages innovation as well as scientific and technical advancement in the United States.
The USPTO website allows the public to search for registered patents and trademarks in addition to allowing the public to see who the attorney of record is on trademark applications and registrations.
Utilizing public information on the USPTO’s Trademark Status and Document Retrieval (“TSDR”) site, Trademarkia was able to compile a list of the top trademark attorneys for 2016. These are the attorneys who are the attorney of record on the most applications and/or registrations for 2016.
And we are proud to announce that the top three attorneys who filed the most applications and/or registrations in 2016 were all LegalForce RAPC attorneys! (And 9 out of the top 25 correspondents and/or attorneys who filed the most applications and/or registrations were current or former LegalForce RAPC attorneys! That’s quite a feat!)
Applying for and registering trademarks is the best way for a trademark attorney to gain experience. (And according to Albert Einstein, “The only source of knowledge is experience.”)
Check out the list of top trademark attorneys who filed the most applications and/or registrations in 2016 below. And you can view the full list on Trademarkia here.
