Are you thinking about registering a trademark? Are you considering applying for it at national or European level? Are you looking for a trademark registration expert? We provide trademark applications and other related services for our clients.

We will be happy to help you register your trademark.

A trademark secures the right to designate goods or services. It can be any sign consisting of words including personal names, letters, numbers or the shape of the product or its packaging. They may also be sounds, provided that they are capable of distinguishing the goods or services of one person from those of another and are also expressed (for example, by a musical notation) in the trade mark register.

The purpose of trademarks is distinctive. The Coca-Cola bottle has an unmistakable shape that most people around the world will remember. At the same time, a trademark is a guarantor of quality, where it builds the owner’s reputation and can give an advantage over competitors. It certainly represents an asset and an investment.

Both a natural person and a legal entity may apply for a trademark in the register. By entering the mark in the register, the owner of the mark obtains the exclusive right to use it, the validity of the mark is 10 years from the date of filing the application. The validity may be extended for a further ten years. 

A trademark may be filed at national, European or international level.

The process of services of a trademark application attorney

Before the actual trademark application, we will discuss with the client what type of trademark they are interested in and what form it will take. We will check possible obstacles to the registration of the trademark and select the territory in which the sign is to be protected, including a list of products and services. The next step is to carry out a search on the availability of the trademark and determine the risk of not registering the trademark, for example, due to objections from other trademark owners. In case that, based on the conducted search, there is a risk that the trademark may not be successfully registered, possible solutions will be proposed. At the same time, the technical requirements for the expression of the mark will be specified. Of course, a price calculation including all administrative fees is provided. In case the client decides to register the trademark, we will arrange everything and inform the client about the whole process of registering the trademark.
