Why UCHOOSE?

Brands are incredibly important, which is why protecting them is critical. At Umark, we understand that choosing the right mark is an important decision, and often our clients find themselves torn between two names.

That’s why we created UCHOOSE to help you through this process at one low cost; providing two separate comprehensive name-search reports with our lawyer review, resulting in just one application to file.

We’ll save you time, money and untold headaches!

“A comparable level of service at any notable Canadian Law Firm can cost you as much as three times the price of Umark!”

Umark Guarantee

Although we have gone to great lengths to make the process of filing a Canadian trademark as easy as possible, there can be real obstacles to overcome if your mark is too confusingly similar to other marks, based upon a variety of factors. Sometimes, the best course of action is to reconsider or modify your proposed trademark. So we offer a guarantee that makes this scenario less problematic.

If, after review of your application by our lawyer, you decide not to proceed with your trademark filing Umark will credit you the Government filing fee and even offer you an additional rebate on your next application filed within 30-days. You win again!
