Pro Bono




Do you need pro bono assistance from a trademark lawyer?


Assistance is coming soon. In 2016, INTA will be launching a pilot pro bono clearinghouse to connect those in need of trademark legal support with available trademark lawyers. The initial pilot program will focus on trademark matters falling within the United States, but INTA plans to expand the program on a global basis in the coming years.  
 
In the meantime, please see the below “International Pro Bono Resource Guide”, which highlights a wealth of assistance available now through pro bono organizations in a variety of countries.

Are you an INTA member looking for information on INTA’s pro bono committee?


An important initiative dedicated to the advancement of trademark pro bono work globally.

INTA's main pro bono objective is to provide a gateway for members to access invaluable information on how to successfully get involved in pro bono programs. There are several ways to achieve this:
  • Create a team of member volunteers who are dedicated to furthering pro bono within the INTA community.
  • Provide links to websites of organizations that are involved with trademark or IP related pro bono work to show opportunities for involvement.
  • Highlight INTA members’ pro bono efforts.
  • Develop pro bono table topics and sessions at upcoming INTA programs.

Do you know an individual or organization involved in trademark pro bono, or do you have your own success story? Are you looking for Pro Bono assistance?

We want to hear about it! Email Stacey Sutton, Associate, Member Acquisition, at ssutton@inta.org to have your experiences, guidance, and suggestions cited on our website.
