Yes. In most cases, an office action can be resolved, and the response timelines can even be extended in certain cases if necessary.

An office action does not outright mean your trademark application cannot proceed further to registration. Rather, it notifies you of all possible deficiencies contained within the application.

A resolution of an office action is heavily dependent on the issue/s raised. Some office actions might only require a simple clarification or amendment to the defined details. In general, it's advised to use the help of a legal representative, who will be able to assist you with the resolution by submitting a response in the proper language.
