Trademark Oppositions

Trademark oppositions frequently occur when a third-party trademark owner alleges a likelihood of confusion arising from a pending mark bearing an alleged similarity to its own mark. The trademark opposition is filed to block the issuance of the pending mark. Should the matter be disputed, it is litigated in a manner similar to a trademark infringement lawsuit, with full discovery, summary judgment motions, final written briefs and, if requested, final arguments before the TTAB. The matter must be litigated pursuant to the TTAB's administrative rules and the deadlines set forth by the TTAB.

Often these matters settle fairly swiftly. In some instances, extended litigation does result. The trademark opposition attorneys at Thomas P. Howard, LLC have handled multiple trademark opposition proceedings on behalf of Thomas P. Howard's clients, and our attorneys are quite familiar with the law relevant to these matters.
