Maintenance

When properly used, renewed, policed and protected, a trade mark registration can last forever.

How can our trade mark team help you ?

We help protect and police your trade marks by:

  • advising you on correct usage
  • renewing all registrations in advance of their due dates
  • filing evidence of your use of the mark in those countries where there use is required to maintain a trade mark registration
  • watching for applications by others to register identical or confusingly similar trademarks/company names and challenging these on your behalf
  • recording your trade mark registrations with Customs authorities in order to catch consignments of counterfeit goods
  • recording any changes to the ownership of your marks or changes to your address or name
  • reviewing your trade mark protection and advising whether it needs updating
