Sherman IP is Onboarding the AKeyMark Platform!

Sherman IP is constantly innovating and striving to maintain its competitive edge. The AKeyMark Platform was launched to provide trademark applicants self-service tools when working with a trademark attorney. Sherman IP has always been the trademark legal team powering AKeyMark. Now, we’re excited to announce that Sherman IP will be onboarding the tools and other Intellectual Property assets of AKeyMark onto www.ShermanIP.com to provide another vehicle for our clients to work directly with the firm’s trademark team in protecting their trademarks.

When you’re in a time crunch and need to get a trademark application started ASAP, or if you just appreciate the ease of an online service available on your schedule, AKeyMark is for you. AKeyMark is another arrow in the Sherman IP quiver that we’re proud to offer as your go-to Intellectual Property Law Firm. Whether you’re looking for a personalized experience served by our legal team, or you’re happy to get things started on your own, we have the tools you need without ever compromising the quality of your legal work. Over the next several months, AKeyMark users will begin to notice a more direct link to their trademark legal team at Sherman IP.


Our Clients Are Noticing the Savings; “Client Case Study”

When our clients win, so do we! It makes us even happier knowing that our clients not only receive superior legal services, but that they’re saving tens of thousands of dollars each year as well.


“Our previous IP firm’s billing was highly speculative and dilatory – we were constantly being billed for things like phone calls and messages and email reviews, along with our litigation and filing needs, and felt we were being double-billed for time as a result,” says Denise Rosemont, Senior Paralegal at The L&R Group of Companies.


With our use of technology-based processes, Sherman IP was able to eliminate many unnecessary charges of L&R’s previous firm, saving them thousands of dollars each month in fees and significantly improving their satisfaction with their IP legal services.


We’re proud to offer innovative fee structures, with much of our practice moving to flat fees and absolutely no hidden costs. Is there an intellectual property matter we can help you with?



New (Stricter) USPTO Trademark Rules


On March 21, 2017, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) implemented a new order to enhance their examination of trademark registrations up for renewal and remove registrations that are no longer in use.


What does this mean for you? Trademark attorneys are more necessary now than ever to properly prepare and file trademark applications so that applicants avoid initial registration issues or future inspection of a trademark registration by the USPTO.


While you might be able to get a trademark registered on your own, mistakes made during the application process may become a liability even after a trademark is successfully registered. We can put your trademark in the best position to avoid serious headaches in the future.
