Our Attorneys will study and analyse your business in order to develop a strategy which your business would suit best.

They will discuss this with you and the final specification will be compiled. With your approval the trademark will be submitted to the official registry.

Once your trademark application is submitted to the official registry, an examiner will check that it meets the demands of the Trade Marks Act, a search is conducted to compare with any already existing trademarks of similarity to ensure there are no conflicts.

A report will be compiled showing any discrepancies in the application and one attempt will be allowed to overcome earlier marks.

The registrar will then advertise the application for a minimum of 2 months in order to allow opposition from third parties.

If there are no objections during this period, then the trademark will be registered from the date of filing.
