Reciprocally recognized Canadian trademark attorneys and agents will continue to be authorized to represent Canadian parties in U.S. trademark matters, but your clients will now be required to appoint a U.S.-licensed attorney to correspond with the USPTO and to file formal responses.
Enter the name of the U.S.-licensed attorney in the “attorney name” field of the “attorney information” page of the forms. Identify the reciprocally recognized Canadian attorney and agent in the “other appointed attorney(s)” field.
Domicile address of a trademark applicant or owner will now be required.
Your Canadian client's domicile will need to be provided on the “applicant information” page or “owner information” page of the forms. “Domicile” for an individual applicant refers to the place the person resides and intends to be the person's principal home and for a juristic entity applicant, such as a corporation or partnership, the principal place of business (headquarters) where the entity's senior executives or officers ordinarily direct and control the entity’s activities.
In most cases, a post-office box address, "care of" address or similar variation cannot be a domicile address. Generally, a street address must be provided.
