A full clearance search is much more comprehensive than a preliminary search. For example, when you select a full clearance search our firm:
- Reviews name variations (such as alternate spellings, phonetic equivalents, wildcards, and word fragments);
- Examines additional databases;
- Examines common law trademarks; and
- Provides you with a formal, written legal opinion regarding search results and identified risks.
If you are particularly nervous about potential risks or plan to exhaust a lot of resources in your brand expansion, this upgraded search service should help you proceed with both eyes wide open.
