There is no entrepreneur in the world who won’t need legal guidance at some point in their entrepreneurial journey.
If you are filing for intellectual property, it may be worthwhile to have an attorney process your application to ensure that everything is completed correctly. For more basic things like trademarks, it is possible to file your own application; however, it is important to weigh the pros and cons of filing yourself.
Here are some helpful resources to explore if you believe that your venture will need intellectual property:
- United States Patent and Trademark Office
- World Intellectual Property Organization
- United States Copyright Office
