Trademark Search

Thinking about registering your trademark? It’s a great idea, but first you’ll need to check if a similar trademark already exists.

Our lawyers can carry out the necessary searches for you. You’ll know whether there’s a similar trademark already, and who owns it if there is.

What you will get from this service

  • A 30-minute consultation with your lawyer. You’ll discuss:
    • Your business and the trademark you want to register
    • Any specific questions you have about trademark registration
    • The key documents your lawyer needs from you
  • Extensive searches of similar marks
  • Choosing the right class for the application
  • Filing a trademark registration in the UK

What this service will enable you to do

With your trademark registered, you:

  • Prevent others using your mark and profiting from your brand and reputation.
  • Protect your business by controlling and limiting the use of your mark.
  • Are able to make a claim for ‘passing off’ if another company tries to use your mark, or a mark that is very similar to yours.
  • Have an asset that increases the revenue of your business – you can collect royalties from it or use it as security for a loan in some circumstances.
  • Have some protection against counterfeiting.
