Begin Trademark Opposition Proceedings

Every business owner and independent professional should consider the added ownership protection provided through trademark opposition proceedings. Request a quote from one of our trademark attorneys to get an estimate of the cost and fees concerning your particular circumstances.
Trademark opposition proceedings should be considered whenever a client believes that a trademark application bears similarity to their own. A client should also consider trademark opposition proceedings if the registration of a proposed trademark would infringe upon their exclusive rights.
Fill out the contact form below to supply your trademark information.
Unlike Trademark Cancellation, Trademark Opposition Proceedings involve preemptive measures to prevent infringement before a trademark has been registered. For this reason, it is important to execute trademark opposition proceedings in a timely manner and before the contested trademark has completed the registration process.
In most cases, a trademark attorney will then personally draft a trademark office action on your behalf and send it to you for your review and approval. This trademark office action will outline the ownership issues of the disputed trademark and will notify the USPTO of these grievances in an effort to prevent the registration of this trademark.
The USPTO review and consider the submitted office action. If accepted, the owner(s) of the disputed trademark will receive an office action notice and be required to make necessary amendments so that the the proposed mark complies with preexisting ownership rights.
