A STRATEGY FOR REGISTERING YOUR TRADEMARKS AND RESERVING YOUR DOMAIN NAMES


A trademark is a rallying sign for customers and as such constitutes an essential part of a business development and communication strategy.

The protection of your trademark should be part of a well thought-out strategy (registration, product and service classifications, territories to be protected, etc.). The first registration is of vital importance since it conditions all subsequent extensions.



A FULL RANGE OF SERVICES


We advise and assist you from the very first glimmers of a project and continue to represent you throughout the entire period of trademark validity, defending your rights and enhancing their value.

We also advise you on any risk from your competitors.

A same product may be covered by several protections, and an industrial design or even a patent can provide further protection for a registered trademark or a domain name. Our team includes specialists covering all aspects of industrial property with our multi-facet expertise helping you to develop an overall approach to your project and bring you appropriate and effective solutions.

The knowledge of our specialized attorneys and agents are constantly updated with the most recent case law. Additionally, a strong relation to the business world is an essential key to defend and promote your rights and protect you against competitors. Custom-tailored solutions are developed to meet your specific needs in terms of deadlines, budget, etc.
