USPTO requires non-U.S. trademark applicants to use U.S. counsel

Effective August 3, 2019, a new United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) rule requires all foreign trademark applicants to be represented by a United States licensed attorney when applying for a U.S. trademark registration.

My partner Elizabeth Patton recently published a summary of the new rule and its impact. For more details, see her post on Fox Rothschild’s Above the Fold blog.
