What People Are Saying
Stacey has educated more than 4,000 attorneys through continuing legal education courses and has over a 99% 5-star rating from those attorneys. Here’s what recent Masterclass students have to say:
“The Trademarkabilities Masterclass has been extremely valuable. I came into the course with a modest amount of trademark experience….If I’d taken this course 2 years ago, it would have saved me months of time and probably helped me avoid a couple headaches along the way. It’s extremely hard to find training programs out there for attorneys looking to jumpstart a trademark practice. Stacey is an excellent instructor and the templates and other materials she provides would be worth the price of admission on their own. It really is a great investment and I highly recommend the course."
"I’m a solo practitioner and started studying IP a little over a year ago. I took trademark classes and every CLE and book that I could find on trademarks. I was actually hesitant to spend more money on taking the Trademarkabilities course because I felt that I already had a good understanding of the topic, but I am SO GLAD that I did. I learned so much from Stacey and feel like she has prepared me to be an even better practitioner through her decades of experience. I highly recommend the Trademarkabilities Masterclass to practitioners of all experience levels."
"Trademarkabilities is hands down one of the best courses I've taken! It's not just a 'crash course'! Stacey walks you through the process and addresses sticking points along the way. The videos, hand outs and real life examples make this course not only informative, but actionable. After completing her course, I felt confident in my practice and strategies. This is a great course to gain hands on practical knowledge for any attorney looking to add on trademarks to their practice."
File Trademark Applications Without Fear
Let’s face it, learning the Trademark Rules of Practice can be overwhelming, and law school doesn’t teach you the nitty gritty details, like how to file trademark applications and see an application through to registration. But whether you work for yourself or a firm, it’s important to start with the rule book so you know the substance and how to navigate the details of trademark law. That’s where our courses come in, walking you through rules and the process step by step, but we don't stop there.
Improve Your Application Approval Rate
Are you currently filing trademark applications but receiving too many Office Actions without always knowing how to respond to the Examiner? We break down the most common types of refusals for you and provide clear strategies along with an arsenal of suggested approaches and client-tested templates, so you’ll know how to respond confidently, completely, and effectively. After taking the course, you'll know exactly what to do the next time you face a refusal.
The USPTO Rules and Forms Keep Changing
In 2019 alone, the Trademark Rules of Practice changed significantly, and they'll continue to change through the coming year. We'll get you up to speed, both by telling you about the latest rules (and where to find them) and by explaining them to you in plain English. We'll also provide practical tips on how to work with your clients and walk you through all the newest forms screen by screen so you know how to navigate all the important forms on the USPTO website.
