We draw on our significant experience and blend it with a realistic understanding of the business environment so as to wisely, but practically, apply the law to the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office (TPO) is the administrative authority dealing with the intellectual property rights registration process in Turkey. TPO has separate departments for trademarks, patents, and designs. The decisions of these departments may be appealed within two months, and the Re-examination and Evaluation Board of TPO gives the final decision in the administrative process.
All final decisions of TPO are subject to statutory audit. Objectors may file a lawsuit against unfavorable decisions before the specialized Civil IP Court in Ankara, which is the competent court for all cases filed against TPI. This lawsuit must be filed within two months of the notification of the TPTO’s final decision.
Ankara Civil IP Court decides the correctness or cancellation of the final decision of TPO. There have been many cases, and TPO has recently started to give acceptable decisions through the continuous improvement and consolidation of case law. The IP Court of the first instance and the Supreme Court play a big role in establishing and maintaining legitimacy and stability in this field, which is quite new for all practitioners.
