We all know that it is absolutely essential to handle proceedings correctly, knowing WHEN, WHY and HOW to take necessary or appropriate steps in order to make sure that the proceedings run smoothly.
Helena Granado, head of our Alicante office gave a presentation at EUIPO on this subject matter, on January 30, 2020, as part of the “XVIII European Union Trade Mark Intensive Module” organized by the Magister Lvcentinvs [IP Master of the University of Alicante]. Please click here.
This presentation contains succinct, main and useful information concerning opposition proceedings before EUIPO, including the changes that arose from the EU Trademark Reform, and it is focused on opposition proceedings based on earlier registered TMs or TM applications with effects in the EU or in EU member states/Benelux.
While handling EUIPO opposition proceedings is a tricky task which must be dealt with by a specialized professional with the necessary skills and expertise, we want our associates and clients to be aware of the main steps and remedies available in the EU opposition trademark system.
