Trademark Prosecution and Defense
Although we take every effort to ensure that your application will proceed without challenge before the Trademark Office, unfortunately, this is not always the case. In some instances, the trademark examiners at the Trademark Office may provide an initial denial of the trademark. This denial often feels like the end of the line for many trademark applicants. Fortunately, we have plenty of experience responding to these denials. Our experience indicates that while these denials are part of the process, the reality is that this becomes a critical negotiation with the Trademark Office to obtain a trademark registration in a crowded field. During this process, we make strategic arguments to persuade the examining attorney that registration should be granted based on specific grounds and in response to the objections raised by the trademark office. Helbraun Levey’s trademark lawyers are experienced in effectively advocating on behalf of our clients under these circumstances by skillfully relying on case precedent or previous rulings by courts and prior decisions issued by the Trademark Office to obtain the best result possible.
