An Established Trademark Attorney

Before starting Trademark Garden, Anton Leonov worked as a Trademark Attorney at a worldwide IP firm where he oversaw hundreds of trademarks. His clients ranged from small Amazon storefronts to software firms and professional athletes.  Since starting Trademark Garden, Anton has focused on representing clients in the technology, e-commerce, and international commerce spaces. He has helped clients all over the world gain access to trademark protection in the United States.

Recent USPTO rule changes have made it more difficult than ever for international applicants to register trademarks in the United States. However, Anton is an expert in leveraging all applicable regulations and treaties to make sure that international parties are provided the trademark protections that they deserve.

Furthermore, Anton Leonov is highly experienced in drafting Office Action responses to all manner of USPTO refusals. These refusals can range from relatively simple issues with identifications of goods, to highly complex refusals based on likelihood of confusion or descriptiveness. Being a business owner himself, Anton understands the unique needs of small business owners. Therefore, Anton prides himself on helping each client to understand the issues with their trademark, including the tradeoff between costs and chances of success in each potential response. This way, each client can make the decision that is right for their unique position and available resources.

From trademarks owned by large companies, to small e-commerce brands launched as a side hustle, Anton can build and price the right trademark service plan. Above all, he will make sure that your rights are protected and enforced.
