Trademark opposition

Do you want to lodge opposition against a newly registered trademark? Or has opposition been lodged against your trademark resulting from an older trademark? Do you want to file an appeal against a decision made by the trademark office or subsequent authorities in opposition proceedings?

What we offer

We can advise you in all questions related to trademark opposition cases and represent you before the respective offices and courts. We can also advise you with respect to possible preliminary legal and delimitation agreements with the opposing party in order to avoid protracted oppositions proceedings and obtain quick legal certainty.

Scope of service

  • Examination and assessment of the technical and legal situation
  • Consulting with respect to the legal options¹
  • Filing an opposition¹
  • Representation in official opposition proceedings¹
  • Creating and negotiating preliminary legal and delimitation agreements
  • Representation in opposition and appeal proceedings against official decisions in opposition proceedings¹


We normally offer these services to you calculated according to the time spent at a suitable hourly rate. We believe that cost transparency and cost reliability obviously form the basis of successful cooperation. We will be happy to provide you with an estimate of the expected costs and the cost risk before taking the job.


¹ In the event that the opposition proceedings are not being carried out against German trademarks or Community trademarks, normally a foreign colleague will have to be called in, which will lead to additional costs. We have a good network of qualified colleagues in most countries that we can rely on as needed for these cases.
