The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board encourages you to consider alternative dispute resolution as a means of settling the issues raised in this opposition or cancellation proceeding. Although more than 95% of Board proceedings are decided prior to trial (by settlement or by entry of pre-trial judgment), alternative dispute resolution techniques might produce an earlier, mutually agreeable resolution of your dispute or might, at least, narrow the scope of discovery or the issues for trial. In either case, alternative dispute resolution might save you time and money.
Many non-profit organizations, both inside and outside the intellectual property field, offer alternative dispute resolution services. Listed below are the names and addresses of organizations that have indicated that they can make arrangements for alternative dispute resolution. The listings are given for your convenience; the Board does not sponsor nor endorse any particular organization’s alternative dispute resolution services.

Finally, if the parties consider using alternative dispute resolution in this proceeding, the Board would like to know; and if the parties actually engage in alternative dispute resolution, the Board would be interested to learn what mechanism (e.g., arbitration, mediation, etc.) was used and with what general result. Such a statement from the parties is not required but would be helpful to the Board in assessing the value of alternative dispute resolution in Trademark Trial and Appeal Board proceedings.
