KB&A Ranked #3 Most Trademark Applications Submitted in the US!

The Top 75 Representatives (by filing volume) at the USPTO in the first half of 2023 between them filed over 77,500 US trademark applications – that’s 30% of all applications

Total filing volume (259,143 applications) was 6% lower than the first six months of 2022 (275,314 applications), with nearly half of the fall due to Chinese applicants filing fewer US applications in 2023, although filing activity has shown signs of recovery in recent months

US based applicants account for just under 70% of applications, with China (20%), the EU (1.7%), and Canada (1.6%) also significant sources of work
