New Rules for Trademark Registration Applications in the U.S.

From August 3, 2019, a non-resident who does not live in the U.S. can apply for registration of a trademark only through an attorney licensed in the U.S. If earlier this condition was just a recommendation, now it is a requirement.

Changes in the trademark registration were implemented in order to:

New Rules for Trademark Registration Applications in the U.S.
Icon increase the compliance of the clients of the United States Patent and Trademark Office with the law on trademarks and the rules of the Office;
Icon increase the accuracy of the trademark presentation;
Icon ensure the integrity of the U.S. trademark register.

The need for new requirements was based on more frequent cases of submission of inaccurate foreign application that did not comply with the U.S. laws. Many organizations not authorized to represent applicants for trademark registration offered their services and engaged in unauthorized legal practice. Now, foreign applicants can be represented only through U.S. attorneys, even if applications are submitted prior to August 3, 2019.

Thus, you will require services of an attorney licensed in the U.S., if you wish to submit:

Icon electronic application for trademark registration;
Icon all applications related to the registration process;
Icon appeal to court concerning the trademarks.

Qualified attorneys from American Corporate Services will help you register your trademark in the U.S. according to the new rules with professional support throughout the process. We look forward to cooperating with you!
