If Your Trademark Application has been Rejected, Witten Law, Ltd. can help

What is an Office Action?

If you have submitted a trademark application in the UK, EU and USA, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) may alert you to certain legal problems with your chosen trademark by way of an official letter sent by the USPTO known as an Office Action. You can visit the USPTO website for further information and office actions here.

Your office action will detail the legal problems with the application itself either by raising (“requirements”) requesting for simple revisions or by legal rejections (“refusals”), meaning your application has been refused due to your chosen trademark being too similar to an already registered trademark.

Office Actions Can be Overcome

Whilst receiving an Office Action does not automatically mean that your trademark application has been rejected, it will be vital that you resolve all these legal issues, within the time limit to file a timely response to avoid the disappointment of the trademark application refusal.

To avoid some of the most common mistakes that can lead to an office action from the USPTO, it is advisable to seek the advice of a trademark lawyer before submitting a trademark application.
