Trademark Registration


What Is a Trademark?

A trademark can be any word, sign, symbol or graphic that you apply to your company, goods or services to distinguish them from those of your competitors; for example, a brand, product or company name, or logo. A trademark can also be a combination of the above. Some things can't be trademarked.


Why Register a Trademark?

If you don't register your trade mark, then someone else can. This puts your business, product or service development at risk. Securing a registered trademark protects your brand and provides you with the tools to prevent someone using similar signs and riding off the back of your business.

Prpfessional Trademark Searches

 

 

Professional Trademark Searches

Get peace of mind and advanced strategy

Make sure your trademark is available before you spend time and money applying.

A basic search is usually done free of charge. This will point to direct conflicts such as exact marks in the same class. 

Comprehensive searches are done by experienced, trained searchers and are far more in-depth than the basic search. A comprehensive search is done on all available databases and include confusingly similar marks in all conflicting classes.

Our clients include well-known law firms, legal consultants and brand managers.

Good To Know




What Are Trademark Classes?

Products (“goods”) and services are organised  according to specific categories, or “classes.” If you wish to use a trademark to cover more than a single product or service, and those products or services fall into more than a single class (for example, motorcycles and clothing) additional fees are required for each additional class. There are more than 80 000 products and services listed and each corresponds to a class.

Classification is complex - trademarks may need to be filed in more than one class and conflicting classes should be factored in.
