Oppositions and Cancellations

Trademark applications that are approved by the Trademark Office can be subsequently opposed by a third-party who alleges harm if the mark is registered. Similarly, a registered trademark can be canceled for violation of applicable statutes. When KramerAmado's clients' trademarks face an opposition or cancelation, or when the firm itself files an opposition or cancelation proceeding, its focus is on finding a quick and equitable resolution to provide the best possible outcome for its clients. Their experience in defending oppositions and cancelations includes maintaining the rights to a highly valuable trademark in the face of an opposition by a cyber-squatter. Many of the oppositions and cancelations that have been defended or filed have been dismissed after negotiations with the adverse party.
