Trade Mark Law

RT Coopers Solicitors provide a guaranteed full trade mark service to start-ups, SMEs and corporate organisations for global trade mark protection.

Before you adopt a brand as the badge of your business, you should conduct clearance searches to ensure that your proposed trade mark is not already in use. The purpose of carrying out a thorough trade mark search is to assess the risk of infringement of a third party’s trade mark and to assess the risk of a third party lodging an opposition to your trade mark application, should an application be filed.

You can protect your names, signatures, strap-lines, smells and logos as trade marks as long as you have a graphical representation of the marks.

Our trade mark solicitors would then put in place risk management measures to ensure that should a third party  claim an infringement or lodge an opposition against your trade mark application, your business would already have a robust strategy to resolve any issues that may arise.

A top class, first rate service which I am sure I will be using again and again
