A trademark is a sign that identifies and distinguishes the goods or services of a business from the goods or services of other businesses. A trademark can be any letter, word, name, signature, device, label, shape, color, aspect of packaging, or any combination of these. A trademark is valuable only if it is created and used intelligently, and trademark protection is the key to securing the brands and images that identify and distinguish a business from its rivals.
Although registering a trademark is not compulsory and rights to a trademark may be obtained without registration, registering a trademark is always wise as proving rights to a trademark without registration is risky and costly. Further, registration adds substantial value to a business. With this in mind, we make every effort to protect and maximize the value of our clients' trademarks.
Working closely with our associates abroad, we provide trademark services wherever our clients need protection.
