Office Action Responses

Lots of trademark applications get denied or challenged. If you’ve applied for a trademark, you may receive a notice from the USPTO called an Office Action. While there are different kinds of Office Actions, they all have strict deadlines. If you don't respond in time, your application could be abandoned.

Indie Law’s experienced trademark attorneys are here to help you tackle any type of Office Action.

Understanding Office Actions

After you file a trademark application, it usually takes six or more months for the USPTO to complete its first review. During this step, the USPTO often issues an Office Action, even if an attorney filed the application.

An Office Action is a response from the USPTO examiner that can address procedural issues, substantive issues, or both. It might cover several issues or just one. No matter what, you have six months to respond to the first Office Action.

Our Experience

We’ve helped clients respond to hundreds of Office Actions over the years.

Why It’s Important to Get It Right

Crafting an effective response takes a deep understanding of trademark laws, strategic argumentation, and solid evidence. While you can respond on your own, the risks of mistakes are high. An improper response can jeopardize your application, lead to additional fees, or delay the process.
