I know nothing about this. Should client get a qualified attorney to help them register their trademark, or is it really only worthwhile for larger companies? Client operates in several states, and has about $60mm in revenue a year.

Seems like a drop in bucket, but then again aren't there common law protections already?

Yes, apply for a trademark. Any attorney can register a trademark. It really is not that difficult and USPTO has video tutorials on their website that walks you through the steps. It is definitely worth the hassle for damages reasons and being able to file a lawsuit in federal court.

If the client wants to do it and is willing to pay you to do it, assuming it's not illegal/frivolous, do it.
