Our trademark attorneys respond to trademark office actions. Some office actions cannot be overcome. We have helped many clients overcome Office Actions that at first glance look like there is no solution. Yet, we have also advised many clients to abandon marks that they have applied for, especially if the Trademark Office Actions are due to a likelihood of confusion with a senior mark that may lead to greater troubles for the trademark applicant.
Most trademark office actions occur because the applicant has applied for a mark that does not merit registration or that is presently being used by a senior user to sell the same or similar goods to the public, thereby causing a likelihood of confusion between the trademark applicant and the trademark senior user.
If you receive a denial, via a trademark office action, because of an alleged conflict with an existing trademark registration or application, then we suggest you contact our trademark lawyers so that our attorneys can evaluate your chances of obtaining a trademark registration.
