How Long Does It Take to Get A Registration ?

Currently it is taking approximately 12-15 months to get a trademark in Germany. 6-9 months if the expedited review service is chosen.


How Long is the Opposition Period ?

The opposition period lasts three (3) months and in Germany is used INSTEAD OF the initial search process normally encountered in the trademark process in other countries. There is no initial search for registerability performed by the DPMA before a mark is published. So potential trademark conflicts are only identified through the opposition process, by having an opposition filed.


How Long Is My Registered Trademark Valid ?

For 10 years, which is back dated to a successfully registered trademark from the date of submission, not from date of application.
