Trade mark services

Safeguarding your image

Your trade mark is a carefully crafted personality profile of your business. It is much more than just a design or a slogan. It may well be your most valuable asset – and it is our mandate to protect it. Our specialist attorneys have a great deal of experience in clearance, prosecution, opposition and portfolio management in a wide variety of sectors. Our clients range from multinational corporations to small scale entrepreneurs – with each one receiving our award-winning high levels of service. Whatever the nature of your business, we will always take the time to really understand it – and your budget – in order to become your trusted advisor.

Your in-house consultancy

Some of our trade mark attorneys have previously worked in industry, so we understand the pressures and think more like business people than lawyers. Simply put, we can’t do our work until we get to know our clients. Things like traveling to meet the wider team, seeing the operation in action, or sending our attorneys on secondments to get to know the business and develop a strategy to protect it, help us get to know them from the inside out and provide creative solutions to their needs.

European experts

We are equally at home right across Europe, and always up to date with the constant evolution of both UK, Benelux and European law. Our Amsterdam (Hilversum) and Munich offices give us a strong foothold in mainland Europe, and our expertise before the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), the Intellectual Property Office of the United Kingdom (UKIPO) and the Benelux Office for Intellectual Property (BOIP) is second to none. That, combined with our attorneys’ technical expertise, is why law firms from all over the world come to us for advice on protecting their clients’ intellectual property and patents.
Recognised for our expertise in UK, Benelux and European Union 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 here are some of our recent accolades:
