Experience
  • Successfully countered a rejection by a trademark registrar through filing a counterstatement and arguing that our client’s trademark was not similar to a prior-registered trademark. As a result, the opposition was cancelled, and our client was able to continue the registration process.
  • Petitioned the Board of Trademarks and successfully argued that our client’s trademark was different from the cited trademark and the goods were also different even though they were in the same class. The Board of Trademarks ultimately cancelled the trademark registrar’s instruction.
  • Secured the registration of a famous mark for clothing products through an appeal to the Board of Trademarks.
