The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) plays a crucial role in resolving trademark disputes in the United States. As a specialized administrative tribunal within the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), the TTAB hears appeals and conducts trials regarding trademark registration and infringement issues.

Whether you're seeking to register a trademark, facing opposition to your application, or involved in a trademark dispute, understanding the functions and procedures of the TTAB is essential to protecting your intellectual property rights.

From preparing and filing appeals, to answering notices of opposition, to drafting TTAB arguments, we're committed to helping you navigate the intricacies of trademark disputes and achieve favorable outcomes for your business.

What is TTAB?

Also called "Ex-Parte," these appeals take place after an application has been rejected during the initial examination process.

Initiated using a "Notice of Opposition," a trademark opposition proceeding seeks to block a trademark application from registering.
