Ensuring that renewals are timely filed on your trademark registrations is a critical element to maintaining your trademark rights. Even if you have used your trademark for years, missing one renewal deadline will cause the USPTO to cancel your trademark registration. Gerben IP provides trademark renewal services to ensure all of your renewal deadlines are properly met.
The first deadline for a trademark renewal comes between the 5th and 6th years after registration. The USPTO will require proof that the trademark is being used in commerce for the goods or services listed in the registration. This “renewal” is technically called a “Section 8 Declaration of Continued Use.”
The second renewal is required 9 to 10 years after the registration date.
The third, fourth and remaining renewals are due every 10 years thereafter.
Our experienced trademark attorneys will navigate the renewal process for you at every step. You can complete our online engagement form for your renewal below, depending on which renewal is due on your trademark registration.
