     If you are planning to do business in Maryland whether as an in-state or out-of-state entity, you must identify a resident agent, also known as a registered agent, who has a legal address in Maryland and is available to receive service of process and certain governmental notices.  Without meeting this requirement and keeping it current, not only may you fail timely to receive critical paperwork, but also jeopardize your good standing status in Maryland.

DESIGNATION OF DOMESTIC REPRESENTATIVE FOR FOREIGN TRADEMARK OWNERS

     If you are the registrant of a trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and you are not domiciled in the USA, you must name a person who is a resident of the USA to act as your Domestic Representative.  The main duty of the Domestic Representative is to provide you with notices and process that may be served in proceedings affecting your mark.  Failing to name such a person means that the process will be delivered to an Official at the Department of Commerce.  You will not get the timely notice you need and could jeopardize the standing of your mark.  Barbara Berschler will see that you receive the notice affecting your mark so that you can respond as appropriate.
