Trademark Owners Beware of Fraudulent Solicitations

Entities such as Patent and Trademark Office, LLC, and Patent and Trademark Bureau, LLC give a false impression that they are the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), scamming more than 2,900 U.S. trademark registrants out of millions of dollars for inflated, and often fake, renewal fees. If you receive suspicious correspondence, check the USPTO scam alert webpage, contact the Trademark Assistance Center, and contact one of the attorneys at our firm to help evaluate the validity of the correspondence. Remember, the USPTO will never ask you for social security numbers or credit card numbers in general correspondence.
