On April 28, 2020 the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) further extended the time to file certain patent and trademark-related documents and to pay certain required fees, which otherwise would have been due between March 27 and May 31. The new deadline is June 1, 2020. This is in addition to the prior extension the USPTO had announced on March 31, 2020. Such an extension will be allowed if they are accompanied by a statement that the filing delay was due to the COVID-19 outbreak. More information can be found at the USPTO website here.
The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is closed to the public until further notice. However, USPTO operations will continue without interruption. Also, patent and trademark deadlines are NOT extended. I am still doing work for my clients, and taking on new matters for new clients, and existing clients.
