In recent weeks, several Luedeka Neely clients have reported receiving trademark notifications and solicitations that typically include offers for legal services, monitoring services or other trademark-related services. These solicitations often appear official and are often sent by companies using names that mimic the United States Patent & Trademark Office or USPTO.
These are not official notices from the USPTO. All official USPTO correspondence will be from the "United States Patent and Trademark Office" in Alexandria, VA. Any email correspondence will include the domain "@uspto.gov." If Luedeka Neely is handling your trademark matters, all official notifications will be delivered to us and we will pass those on to you.
If you receive a notice that you suspect may be a non-USPTO solicitation, please contact our office at (865) 546-4305 before sending any money or responding in any way.
