Trade Mark Filing and Registration

We will use all of our experience to make sure there are no potentially costly gaps in the way your marks are protected.

Our hugely experienced attorneys will guide you through what you can and can’t register and the difference in registration practices between different countries and jurisdictions.  

Our first step is always to explore everything you want to achieve in detail.  From there we will help you find the best possible route to securing the protection your mark requires whether that’s the Intellectual Property Office (“IPO”) for a UK filing or registering as a European Union trade mark (EUTM) or under the Madrid Protocol or Madrid Agreement if wider international coverage is required.  

We will also explain all of the advantages, disadvantages and cost implications of each so that you have all of the information you need to make the right decision.

If you need to file outside Europe we will use our extensive international network to find the best match for you in terms of location, capability and sector experience.
