A trademark opposition attorney with experience in front of the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) can help you when you wish to oppose a pending trademark application filed with the United States Patent Trademark Office (USPTO) or when a Notice of Opposition has been filed against your trademark application. A trademark opposition is typically filed when a trademark owner believes she has prior rights and that a pending trademark application, for example, infringes her trademark or is generic or descriptive so as to not qualify for protection. One who wishes to file a trademark opposition must understand that only a 30-day window exists during what is known as the Opposition Period. While extensions may be sought during this Opposition Period, knowing how to properly monitor third party trademark applications is essential.
If you have been named in a Notice of Opposition or you wish to file a Notice of Opposition as plaintiff, you should seek counsel from a trademark opposition attorney.
