If there is no problem, the application will pass the substantial examination and get ready to be published in the Chinese Trademark Gazette and be open for 3 months for opposition. If no opposition is filed or if it is decided that the opposition is not justified, the mark will be approved for registration and the certificate of registration will be issued.

 The estimated time frame from filing to issuing of the Certificate of Registration will be about 30-36 Months if everything goes smoothly.

Client Testimonial

One of the best China lawyers based in Shenzhen! I appreciated this Shenzhen lawyer's service because they helped me achieved my goals, though it was a tough mission. They are English speaking lawyers, so there are absolutely no communication barrier you likely encounter elsewhere. What impressed me is these Shenzhen lawyer's quick response and professional service, two characteristics which I treasure most. Although the Shenzhen lawyers are based in south China, they represent clients across the country, so you can also call them China lawyer! - Johnson
