A: There is no "reinstatement." You'll have to complete and file a new Registration Application and go through the normal registration process. If you need assistance, feel free to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
A: Presuming the mark is yours and that you're not trying to "reinstate" someone else's abandoned mark, if the mark was abandoned for failure to respond to a USPTO Office Action, you can file a petition to revive. If the mark was abandoned due to USPTO error, you can file a request for reinstatement. If the mark was abandoned due to your failure to file a Statement of Use and the failure was unintentional, you can also file a petition to revive. And so on.
If these petitions or requests are denied, then you need to file a new application. I would also be happy to assist. email@example.com .
