Trademarks

Trademark clearance and watch services

A prior search of the register is advisable to avoid office actions or oppositions. In some cases investigations of prior use, trade name and business name searches are also advisable.

Our software and proprietary databases permit us to conduct our trademark searches and watch services in-house. Results are carefully studied to provide the clients only with relevant information. 

The search report we provide includes trademark availability opinion and chances of success.  Our service includes follow up and suggestions to enhance the chances of registration.
