The Refusal Resolution Process

Step-by-Step Guidance

Our USPTO refusal resolution process is designed to provide comprehensive support:

  • Consultation

    We evaluate the specifics of your refusal and discuss potential strategies.

  • Strategy Development

    We develop a customized strategy to address the specific refusal issues.

  • Documentation

    We assist in preparing the necessary documentation and responses.

  • Negotiation

    We negotiate with the USPTO examiners when necessary to resolve refusals.

  • Resolution

    We work diligently to achieve a favorable resolution and secure your trademark rights.


This refusal occurs when your trademark is too similar to an existing one. We help establish differences to overcome it.

Descriptive marks lack distinctiveness, while generic terms cannot be trademarked. We assist in strengthening your mark.

A specimen is evidence of your mark's actual use. We ensure you submit acceptable specimens to support your application.

These are needed when certain elements of your mark need to be disclaimed or translated for clarity.

The timeline varies, but we work diligently to achieve timely resolutions.
