Your brand is the heartbeat of your business. Our trade mark services are designed to fortify your brand identity and protect it from unauthorised use.

We provide specialist trade mark services including:

Managing international trade mark portfolios of clients

  • Drafting, filing and prosecuting trade mark applications through the UK, European Community and Madrid Protocol systems, and in jurisdictions throughout the world via a long-established network of attorneys;
  • Trade mark clearance searching and advising on potential conflicts of use and registration of new marks from risk mitigation and commercial standpoint, recommending future branding directions and strategies;
  • Monitoring of worldwide registers for potentially conflicting marks, advising on third party conflict options, perceived likelihood of success and commercial implications;

Trade mark infringement and passing off

  • Safeguard your brand reputation by actively monitoring trade marks for potential infringement. Our services include prosecuting and defending proceedings for trade mark infringement and passing off.
  • When acting for pursuers, we can often assist in the first instance by issuing pre-action correspondence with a view to bringing about early resolution and stopping infringing activity without the need for court proceedings.
  • When defending allegations, we seek to provide clear advice on the strengths of any defence available and to seek a resolution on the best terms possible.
  • We also have experience with assisting clients with the proceedings before UK Intellectual Property Office which administers the registration of trade marks.
