Yes, it's possible to utilise a so-called grace period to request trademark renewal after the trademark has expired. The length of the grace period is typically six months.

However, we would advise not relying on the grace period and starting the renewal process as soon as possible. In most countries, you can apply for renewal six months before expiration. In the US, Australia or New Zealand, it's twelve months.
