Trademark is a unique identification of your brand name when you doing business in the startup level. It may be a word mark, slogan, logo, or a device mark (combination of word mark and a logo), symbol, sound or smell mark and color. The first and foremost thing in the trademark registration is Trademark search. Why because, a trademark must be a unique one and it doesn’t match the existing trademark both visually and phonetically from others. The Trademark Registry never accepted the similar trademark. It will refuse that kind of similar trademarks. So, the time and expensive you spend for that trademark application is totally waste.

I suggest you to go for a trademark attorney like Solubilis. Why because the attorney people will guide you in a right suggestions to choose you a unique brand name and explains you all the terms related to trademarks.
