If at any of these stages the specialists of the patent office have questions, then the applicant is sent a request.
Trademark inquiries relate to the description of the object, the presented image, the reduction of the list of goods and services according to the ICGS and other actions aimed at increasing the level of uniqueness and the degree of protectability of the designation.
Zuykov and partners will tell you how to respond to requests from experts from the patent office, help you draw up documents correctly and send them on time.
