A trademark protects the name of a company, a product and a service as well as slogans and the like. Trademarks can be obtained for word marks, logos, sound marks or the shape or packing of goods.
Before we file a Trademark application in India, we perform a trademark search for your mark in relevant class(es) based on the nature of goods or services. This helps to strategise the trademark registration process for your mark.
We file the Trademark application in the right class with the right description to ensure Trademark registration for your brand name, product/service name with broader scope.
It is important to provide proper written response or oral arguments to overcome the objections raised in the TradeMark examination report. With considerable experience in responding to TradeMark examination reports and capable lawyers, we ensure every legal argument is put forward to obtain TradeMark registration.
In order to register a TradeMark internationally, one can choose to file TradeMark application via Madrid System, which allows an applicant to file a single TradeMark application and pay one set of fees to apply for protection in up to 122 countries by filing a single TradeMark application, or file the TradeMark application in each country separately. We are capable of handling both.
