Trade Marks

Registered trade marks can be used to protect not only the name of a business or product, but also the get up, including the logos, colours, 3D and moving images and even some sounds. Trade marks have value on the balance sheet of a business and are generally considered to be the most commercially significant asset of a business. It is therefore vital to ensure that your trade marks are properly and comprehensively protected. Every business has at least one trade mark, and usually many more, for which protection should be considered. We have the expertise to help.

We specialise in providing proactive and commercially-oriented advice. We have an established track record of providing IP services in a tailored, cost-effective and efficient way to clients. Two of our trade mark attorneys are former In-House Counsel so understand the commercial advice that clients require. We have an outstanding trade mark prosecution practice and work for some of the world’s largest corporations, managing their European or worldwide trade mark portfolios.

The firm has extensive experience in opposition and appeal proceedings before the registries, as well as litigation in the UK and overseas; including before the EUIPO, the UKIPO and all levels of English courts. Our combination of opposition and litigation experience is rare in UK firms.
