Our full-service solutions cover the entire process of acquiring and protecting a Trademark
Registering a trademark is not always a simple matter of submitting an application. Many jurisdictions do not make information readily available to the public and some do not provide reliable data online. Researching similarities to your trademark can be a complex task.
There are several reasons why you might want to begin the registration process with a study:
- If there is a pre-existing claim to your trademark, it is best to know this before you have invested time and resources into an application
- Trademark similarities can be ambiguous and are best evaluated by a legal professional
- It is possible to accidentally infringe on someone else’s trademark if you are not aware of its existence
- A trademark study provides a snapshot of potential brands in your target market
With representation in almost every major jurisdiction, TradeMarkers has up-to-date information on trademark application activities. Hence, we are able to offer the following services:
- Full analysis of existing trademarks, including similarities in appearance, sound, connotation and commercial impression
- Consultation on what to do if an existing similarity is found
- Enquiry with local trademark offices, as necessary
- Detailed reporting on the availability of relevant marks and recommendations for your application
The ownership of a trademark is not automatically granted merely by using it. Generally speaking, only by going through the legal process of registration can you ensure rights to your trademark.
With a legally registered trademark, you gain several benefits:
- Potential copycats are deterred from infringing on your brand
- The ability of other brands to claim that you are infringing on their trademark is severely diminished
- If a confusingly similar mark is filed, it is much easier to pursue legal action against infringements
- A registered trademark allows your brand to gain wider recognition
TradeMarkers navigates through the registration process so that you can get the trademarks you want in the countries where you do business. We provide our clients with the following:
- Filing services in over 150 countries and treaty regions
- Consultation throughout the registration process
- Entry into closed and restricted countries, where trademark registration is especially difficult
- Real-time updates regarding the status of your application

This is the response to office actions that have disclaimer issues, specimen problems, inaccurate descriptions of goods & services, inaccurate descriptions of logos, questions about foreign language translations, and other procedural refusals.
