If a counter-statement is filed, the Trademark Office will then allocate a hearing date, for the parties to present arguments, following which a written decision will issue. Notably, both parties may, within the discretion of the hearing officer, submit additional arguments and submissions up to the hearing date, or be invited within the hearing notification to supplement their oppositions and/ or provide information or documents to assist the hearing officer, including as to any possible settlement reached between the parties. It is, however, recommended to prepare and file full arguments and evidences up front, to avoid the risk that supplementary arguments/ evidences might not be considered.
