Trade marks help a business protect its brand. If time and money have been spent creating a new brand identity or building up an enviable reputation in a market sector, registering a trade mark should be considered.
Our team can advise on steps to take to register the appropriate trade mark in UK, EU and worldwide.
But trade marks need to be protected and when these are copied, used or infringed our team can settle disputes out of court and a solicitor’s cease and desist letter can have a significant impact.
However, trade marks come in registered and unregistered varieties. The brand does not have to be registered as a trade mark to have legal protection.
