Trademark Opposition and Cancellation Proceedings

Opposition proceedings are essential to blocking applications of trademarks which may confuse the general public or dilute the distinctiveness of an existing trademark. Opposition proceedings can also provide strategic leverage in settlement negotiations. A registered trademark can be taken off the register by a revocation action. Such action may be useful in assisting another person to secure registration for similar trademark.

LJ Vernus has considerable experience in the conduct of non-use investigation, compiling evidence, preparing and filing oppositions and revocation actions, attending hearings and arguing in support of our clients.
