Trademark Protection Services

Our trademark attorneys will guide you through the identification of potentially registrable trademarks, the options for securing trademark registrations appropriate for your business, and the subsequent application procedures for obtaining trademark registrations at home and overseas. We also give trademark advice in relation to generation of a portfolio of registered trademarks that provides strategic protection for your important brands.

Our trademark attorneys are here to help you through every stage by making this process as smooth and straightforward for you as possible. The most important aspects of our role are:

• advising you whether a particular trademark is likely to meet the requirements for registration, and whether there is any risk of opposition to the trademark application by a third party with earlier rights. This might require us to carry out searches to establish what earlier trade mark rights exist, and whether those earlier rights are valid

• drafting the specification of goods and services in a way that offers comprehensive protection, taking into account your plans for the future

• steering the application through all the stages of the application procedure, including advising in relation to any amendment or legal argument that may be required to obtain registration of your trademark

• advising in relation to any opposition that may be filed against your application, and handling any defence to that opposition or any negotiation of co-existence with the other party, as appropriate

After a trademark has been registered, we assist with the maintenance of the registered trademark and advise on its enforcement should the registered trademark be infringed by a competitor.

We will also help you build and manage an effective portfolio of registered trade marks, which provides cost effective and strategic protection for your business. Our regular contact with you and your business will enable us to continually monitor whether the protection strategy adopted meets your evolving needs, to ensure that you maximise your commercial advantage.
