Whether you are looking to register your branding, prevent a competitor from taking advantage of its distinctiveness or manage your trade mark portfolio, we can work with you to provide commercially relevant strategies that reflect the value of your trade mark rights.

Following Brexit, from 1 January 2021, EU trade marks no longer cover the UK, and so separate EU and UK applications need to be made for any new marks that need protection in the UK and EU. As a firm with a Munich office for 40 years, we can handle both for you.

Read our Brexit blog to follow all the recent developments.

Trade marks are central to the identity of your business, setting you and your products and services apart from your competitors. We understand the importance of these assets and can help you with building and defending brand value in order to provide you with a strong competitive platform.
