SOUTHWEST RANCHES, Fla., April 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Bankers Healthcare Group, the nation's leader in financing for healthcare professionals, is proud to announce the federal registration of the BHG trademark by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
"We are pleased with the successful application for federal registration of our company trademark," stated Christopher J. Cali, Esq. BHG Corporate Counsel. "The application process is complex and requires extensive documentation including proof that our brand is recognized within the industry we serve. This registration is a welcome affirmation of the efforts we have made over the last ten years to create brand awareness and earn a strong reputation as a provider of financing services to healthcare professionals around the country.

It is a legal process that can takes years and requires the trademark meet stringent criteria. Once the trademark is federally registered, it is protected from infringement, which, in turn, protects the company's reputation. For a company like BHG, which has worked diligently to build a strong reputation, federal trademark registration is a valuable company asset.
