When a trademark application is filed, the German Trademark Office will review the application. Then an official receipt will be issued within a day and sent out by regular mail. The German trademark office will review the submission and registers the mark within 3 to 4 weeks if the German trademark offices see no problems with the trademark application. In accelerated trademark application proceedings, the registration will often happen within 2 to 3 weeks. Your trademark will then receive a registration number and be published for opposition purposes. The opposition period is 3 months. The German trademark stays registered during an opposition proceeding.
