Trade Mark Clearance Searches

Before adopting a trade mark, you should conduct a clearance search to make sure that the chosen trade mark is free for use and registration, and is not in conflict with an existing trade mark.

Companies that adopt a trade mark without first searching for potentially conflicting trade marks run the risk of infringing an existing trade mark which could result in significant legal and financial penalties.

We can arrange clearance searches to ensure that your trade mark is free to use and register in all relevant markets and, where appropriate, devise a strategy to deal with potential conflicts.
