Dealing with Trademark Objections

Lawchakra’s 1st Moot TM Registry Contest

IP Awareness Series Part I

About the Workshop

As lawyers, we know that our arguments must be top-notch in traditional (now virtual) courtrooms.

But, did you know that you’re not just required to argue in those courtrooms and Moot Competitions?

A Trademark does not automatically get registered just by filing an application.

It is a long and hard process fraught with objections, oppositions and obstacles every step of the way. 

The battle of brands at courts really begins at the Trademark Registry.

It’s at the Registrar’s office where you file the application, it’s here where objections by Registrars  are dealt with and a competent lawyer MUST be well-prepared to handle them.

About time we paid attention and respect to the Tribunals or the lowest strata of any kind of proceeding, which is as important as any other courtroom of our country. Ignorance in this regard could severely hamper the quality of our work and the sanctity of our services. 

Let’s remedy that, shall we?

Lawchakra has brought to you an opportunity to get a taste of the real world by participating in this 2- day Contest where you get to play the role of a TM Attorney making submissions before the TM Registry to remove objections and allow your Trademark Application to move forward. You will also be given an overview of the basics of Trademark Law, the registration procedure and tips & tricks to follow when you encounter TM objections.
