We always advise that you instruct us to carry out a search of trademark registers in UK and EU. If you would like us to do this before proceeding to apply for your trademark registration, please let us know.

The process to register your TM will be as follows:

  • You tell us the TM you want to have registered and for what services and in what location.
  • We shall review your TM and tell you what classes you can register in.
  • If you would like us to carry out a search for existing similar trademarks, for a view on whether there is risk of opposition, we shall do this.
  • We shall apply to register your TM.
  • We shall keep you updated on the process and on any objections or potential oppositions to your TM.
  • Finally we shall send you your TM registration certificate.
