3. Can you do it by yourself? Yes, there is no obligation in having a trademark attorney/lawyer apply for a trade mark on your behalf.


However, we recommend that you should use a trademark attorney/lawyer to make sure the registration happens smoothly because the protection of your brand is very important part of your business, and you need to do get it right the first time.
