How long does the trademark registration process take in Laos?
The Lao IP Law No. 38/NA of November 15, 2017 does not establish a time limit for the Department of Intellectual Property of Laos to conduct formality and substantive examination of trademark applications in Laos. In practice, it usually takes around 10-12 months from the filing date to obtain a Trademark Registration Certificate in Laos in smooth cases (i.e. without oppositions, office actions, etc.).
