While many attorneys are familiar with proceedings in state and federal courts, a case before the Trademark Trial & Appeal Board (TTAB) is a special appearance before a federal administrative court. Many trademark applicants, especially pro se applicants, are unaware that filing a trademark application may result in appearing before the TTAB or defending a challenge of the application's existence by third parties.
In this updated course, trademark attorney Anthony Verna will familiarize attorneys with the TTAB as a whole and the very specific rhythm of such a case. The program is also updated to include new rule changes in 2017.
Anthony M. Verna III, is the managing partner at Verna Law, P.C. He is a member of the New York and New Jersey Bars, as well as the U.S. District Court Southern District of New York. He is a sought-after business speaker, including regular appearances at the World Board Gaming Championships, Business Marketing Association of New Jersey, and Columbian Lawyers Association.
