Affordable, lawyer-quality trademark registration.
For the first time ever, trademark lawyers work with you to get your trademark registration right.
Your business is your legacy. Protect what you've worked for with a registered trademark.
We believe that all entrepreneurs should have easy access to legal services they can trust.
We've helped some of North America's most prominent companies protect their brands, and we're offering the same high-quality service to you at an affordable cost.
For a small flat fee, you'll work directly with a top-tier legal expert who will search and draft your trademark application for you. You can rely on us to get it done - and get it done right.
Trademark DIY is the perfect solution for a bootstrapped start-up. An expert holds your hand through the hard part of a trademark application, then you take care of the easy stuff on your own.
Komail Ibrahimi, Founder of Merak.Life
I recommend Trademark DIY for anyone looking to protect their brand. I considered filing my trademark without legal help, but that felt daunting. Trademark DIY offered undeniable value - an expert ran a full search and walked me through the application. I saved over $700 without compromising quality/ protection.
Alex Curci, Visual Artist and Creative Technologist
As a small business owner I was looking for a 'budget' service. Trademark DIY is the only option out there offering a hybrid between hiring a trademark lawyer and filing on your own. It feels good knowing that I'm not paying for services I can handle myself.

Here's how it works
1. Choose your options
- Order a search report on its own; or
- Order a trademark registration package incl. search (own your name, logo, tagline)
2. Fill out our online form
Just some basic questions: your name, address and questions about your trademark
We explain every step over the phone - it's like we're right beside you!
3. Discovery call with us
Once you place your order, we will be in touch to schedule a discovery call with one of our trademark agents who will walk you through the process and confirm your trademark details.
4. Complete the CIPO filing
We will call you, and together we will complete a trademark application using the CIPO's online filing system. You will have 30 minutes of expert assistance per trademark.
If you also ordered a search report, you will have an additional 15 minutes of time added to your call to discuss the search results.
5. Monitor the process
Once we help you file your application, simply continue the monitoring process on your own.
Here's what it costs
It's not expensive - If you can track an application online, you can save hundreds of dollars. Get the expertise of a lawyer/trademark agent at a fraction of the cost.
Name only (incl. search)
Plus tax and CIPO filing fees
Name plus Logo
Plus tax and CIPO filing fees
And if any extra help after filing is needed, we offer a range of services at flat-fee rates that are cheaper and more efficient. No ifs, ands or buts!
Trademark DIY is the brainchild of The Trademark Group - a flat-fee law firm, home to a team of specialized intellectual property lawyers and registered trademark agents (and escapees from the traditional legal world).
We got rolling in 2011 because we hated seeing people overspending on hourly-fee lawyers, or getting into legal trouble from using inexpert, unlicensed trademark registration services with no one to turn to when things go south - or who charge you to fix an application they should have done right in the first place.
Our goal was to create the ultimate Do-It-Yourself online trademark registration service - but only if it could work like we were right beside you, counselling you every step of the way, and instantly available for any questions.
However, there will be always be cases where for many reasons - limited time, a corner-office request - you'll want the full-service treatment, and we're thrilled to keep offering that, too.
Best of all, no matter which trademark registration option you choose, our deep legal expertise is there for you whenever you need it.
It's not complicated -
If you've ever done an online application, you can do this.
