The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board's (TTAB) pro bono clearinghouse program recognizes organizations that coordinate free legal services to members of the public in proceedings before the TTAB, and who might not otherwise have affordable access to legal assistance (such as financially under-resourced individuals, small-to-medium-enterprises, and not-for-profit and nonprofit or charitable organizations with low operation budgets). Each recognized clearinghouse organization has different requirements for accepting new clients, and matches eligible clients with volunteer member attorneys.
Individual practitioners, law firms, and other legal service providers are encouraged to continue providing pro bono services to their clients. However, they are not eligible to be recognized by the Program unless they also act as a referral clearinghouse – i.e., matching prospective clients with legal practitioners outside of their own practices or organizations.
