A trade mark is a sign that sets your products or services apart from those of your competitors.
An owner of a trade mark gains exclusive rights and ownership to the brand as registered.
Registered trade marks provide a valuable service to the public because if anyone was able to copy any mark, how would you know whether the products or services you are buying are genuine or an inferior copy. By registering your name and / or logo as a trade mark means your brand remains unique. If someone copies it you can take action against them.
Trade marks last 10 years and can be renewed indefinitely. Some trade marks on the Register are over a 100 years old.
We are more than happy to have a no obligation confidential conversation if you would like to explore how to register your trade mark.
We also offer clearance searches and can help you if someone uses your trade mark without your permisison.
