Based out of AZ, looking to start up a gaming studio with some friends. We've settled on our company name, we have a domain, and we've registered our DBA.
I know we still need to register our trademark, but is there anything else we need to cover in the run-up to being a real business? None of us have any significant experience in the world of making a business, and I want to make sure I'm not missing any steps before we've managed to get off the ground.
USPTO also recommends we get an attorney to move through the trademark process. Any recommendations? The last few agencies I tried contacting seemed to be well rated, but they kind of blew me off and gave me the run around while I was trying to get a quote for their services, and I just want to make sure I'm investing in something valuable to us instead of burning cash.
Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!
