Register a Trade mark

Protecting your Brand

When you register a trade mark it provides a level of protection against those who may seek to use your mark without permission and can deter others from using it. Our expert team of trade mark solicitors can help you to decide what level of protection you need and can help pursue those who use your mark without permission.

Why do you need to apply for a trade mark?

A trade mark is a fundamental asset to any business. It provides a badge of origin that you can attach to your products and services, identifying your business as the owner of the brand that customers are buying into.

As one of the few registrable intellectual property rights, trade marks protect businesses from those wishing to copy your brands or ride on the back of your success.

We know that you will have spent a great deal of time and resources building your brand, and trade marks are there to ensure that this effort does not go unrecognised.

How long does it take to apply for a trade mark?

The timeframe for a trade mark application varies depending on whether you are seeking UK or EU protection. From the point of application, unopposed UK applications can take 3 – 4 months to be registered, whilst EU applications can take 5-6 months.

It is important to seek advice in relation to your application as early as possible in order to minimise any delays in obtaining protection.
