We offer a complete one-stop-shop for businesses and individuals looking to protect their brand in the UK, Europe and globally.
Unlike some online registration services which focus on filing only, we have a strong background in all areas of intellectual property law and trade mark matters. In particular we specialise in ensuring that you are given the best possible advice at each key stage of the process, including trade mark:
Why Register A Trade Mark?
When you start up a business, often the focus is getting your company set up and developing a presence on the internet. However, it is not sufficient to simply register a domain name and company name with Companies House.
There are two key questions you also need to answer with relation to the protection of your brand:
- Am I free to use the name I have chosen?
- Can I stop others using the same or similar name?
Only trade mark registration provides this protection of your brand, while also acting as a deterrent to potential infringers. With a registered trade mark, you are entitled to take legal action against any entity that uses your mark without authorisation. In addition, the correct use and protection of a registered mark can provide you with a valuable asset to licence or potentially sell in the future.
