Response to opposition
Save your trademark application by submitting a proper response to objections raised by other trademark owners.
Have you received an opposition?
When applying for a trademark, owners of already existing trademarks can come forward and challenge the new application if they believe it infringes on their rights. However, oppositions are not automatically accepted by the IP office, and if you have received one, there might be ways of saving your trademark. We can assess your case, offer legal guidance and craft a proper response to help you stand your ground.

What can be done about an opposition?
The best approach for addressing an opposition depends on specific circumstances. Below you can find some of the standard resolution tactics we also employ.
Limitation of goods and services
Removing some of the goods and services items can ensure that your brand won't be seen as a competition to the other brand.
Signing a co-existence agreement
You can approach the opposing party and ask them whether and under what circumstances they would be willing to sign a co-existence agreement.
Challenging the opposition
Receiving an opposition, even from renowned brands, doesn't mean that all is lost. Sometimes, the claims can be successfully challenged.
