Obtaining a Trade Mark Registration

Once successful clearance searches have been undertaken, your trade mark should be protected by registration.

There are three methods of protecting a trade mark, namely, by means of a National registration in each country of interest, through the European Union trade mark system, which extends to all 28 Member States of the European Union and through registration as an International trade mark under the Madrid Protocol. An International Trade Mark registration may designate one or all of the 91 countries/territories that are members of the Madrid Protocol.

We have extensive experience of all three registration systems and can devise a strategy to protect your trade mark in all relevant markets and in the most cost effective manner possible.
