Trade Marks

Trade Mark Opposition

Our trade mark team have a wealth of experience in handling disputes and, when appropriate, negotiating an acceptable settlement.

If one of your marks is opposed, we can manage your response at the IPO if it is a UK trade mark or before the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) if it is a European Union trade mark*.

If your mark is opposed outside Europe we will manage your response with the help of one of our trusted global network of attorneys.

*Note that, on 23 March 2016, OHIM became the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), and the Community trade mark (CTM) became the European Union trade mark (EUTM).
