Do I need an attorney for Trademark registration?
It depends. If you file your own application and there are no oppositions or other complications, no representation is required. However foreigners are obliged to appoint a local representative.
In cases where an opposition to your trademark is filed, you need to involve local Trademark Attorney/Professional. Some Trademark attorneys can represent you in specific proceedures at local Courts.
Appointment of an Trademark Attorney/Professional in early stages of Trademark registration will decrease a risk of trademark being rejected by the Office as well as provide you with a valuable information regarding pre-filing search strategies.
