I just created a startup company and I want to start my own line of products. The trademark would be for the product and NOT the company name. From what I have heard, a trademark usually takes 8-9 months (federal trademark). However, I do know someone who filed with Legalzoom and got his trademark within 2 months. I don't know if there is a specific time to apply with the USPTO to get the paperwork moving faster? Maybe that is why he got it so fast or does it depends on the wording of the brand? As of right now, I don't believe the USPTO has the name/brand of what I want so perhaps it would process faster?
