Respond to a Trademark Office Action

When the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issues an Office Action refusing to register your trademark, it is crucial to respond within three (3) months from the date the Office Action was issued. Failure to respond within this period will result in your trademark application being declared “abandoned” or “dead,” and your trademark will not be registered.

At Axenfeld Law Group, we specialize in helping you respond to Office Actions issued by the USPTO in a timely and efficient manner. For a flat fee – determined based on the complexity of the Office Action – an attorney licensed to practice before the USPTO will prepare and file a response addressing each refusal and/or requirement to help you overcome all refusals and satisfy all requirements. Our goal is to place your application in the best possible condition for approval and publication in the Official Gazette.

Our straightforward system for responding to trademark Office Actions is designed to maximize your chances of overcoming the Trademark-Examining Attorney’s refusal to register your trademark. Here’s how it works:

  1. You provide us with the Serial Number of your trademark application.
  2. We review your trademark application file at the USPTO.
  3. We send you an estimate to respond to the trademark Office Action.
  4. If you wish to proceed, you sign our engagement agreement.
  5. You pay our retainer upfront via credit card.
  6. We send you a signed counterpart engagement agreement.
  7. We prepare and file a response to the Office Action, aiming to place your application in the best condition for approval for registration. While there are no guarantees, we strive to optimize your chances of success.
  8. If the refusals are overcome, your application should be approved for publication (or receive a Notice of Allowance).
