As of Dec. 21, 2019, the U.S. Trademark Office will require that owners of applications and registrations provide a valid email address for communication. While we provide our email address as your attorney of record, the Trademark Office requires this additional email address to cut down on paper and courtesy maintenance reminders.

We recommend that you create an email address such as that is accessible to several members of your organization, so that no one person is responsible for all incoming communications from the Trademark Office. Please note that the Trademark Office will contact us first regarding the filings we make on your behalf, but once the registration issues, it will contact you through this new email as to any cancellation action filed against the registration, so it will be important to monitor this email address.

The content of this article is intended to provide a general guide to the subject matter. Specialist advice should be sought about your specific circumstances.
