The function and worth of trade marks is well known in today’s commercial world. Less well understood is how to protect them and maximise their value.
This is where Kilburn & Strode’s comprehensive expertise pays dividends. Our trade mark attorneys help clients from every sector on all aspects of trade mark choice, clearance, registration and worldwide portfolio management.
The acquisition, enforcement and licensing of worldwide trade marks forms the core of our business, and in every matter we handle our goal is to offer advice that is both pragmatic and commercially-minded. We are responsive too, with online trade mark searching being one example of how we can solve problems fast by negotiating a solution before positions become entrenched.
Recognised for our expertise in UK and European Community Trade Mark matters, we also have an excellent track record in trade marks internationally. Our team is ranked in the top tier by The World Trade Mark Review, The Legal 500 and Chambers directories – and these are some of our recent accolades:
