Mediation

OHIM offers a mediation service for inter partes proceedings, during the appeal proceedings (which shall be suspended), allowing the parties to reach an amicable settlement.

If mediation is held in Alicante it will be free of charge. However, In case mediation takes place in the Office premises in Brussels, a one-off fee of EUR 750 is charged to cover the traveling expenses of the OHIM mediator.

The role of the mediator consists of assisting the parties in finding common grounds to settle their dispute.
