Hello

So if you purchased the company then you would naturally get the TM along with it (unless it's some rare situation where it was specifically excluded). You just need to hire a TM/IP attorney to file an "assignment recordation" with the USPTO so that the owner/assignee of record is changed from Powertraveller LTD to Powertraveller Inc.
