Our registered trade mark attorneys can advise on the protection, enforcement and commercialisation of trade marks, dispute avoidance and dispute resolution. They can represent you before the UK IPO, EUIPO and WIPO.

A National Trade Mark registration only has effect in the UK and Northern Ireland. A European Union Trade Mark registration (EUTM) has effect in all member states of the European Union. The international registration of trade marks using the Madrid Protocol allows us to directly secure multi-country trade mark protection with significant savings in costs. This enables protection in up to over 90 countries. For all other countries, our extensive network of reliable overseas trade mark attorney firms means we can provide a consistent, quality service worldwide.

  • Advising on your choice of trade marks and their registrability
  • Trade Mark Audits and IP portfolio management to suit a range of budgets
  • Searches, investigations and strategic advice
  • Advice on filing strategies
  • Preparing, filing and prosecuting national, EU or international trade mark applications
