Trademarks & Brand Protection
In the digital age, brands drive business, and trademarks are a primary tool for their preservation.
Trademark registration is an effective way of ensuring the protection of your brand. Subject to the limitations imposed by trademark legislation, business signs capable of being represented graphically and which can distinguish goods or services of a particular business can be protected by trademark registration. Trademarks usually consist of words, figurative elements, letters, numerals or the shape of the goods or their packaging.

We also guide clients negotiate and conclude agreements related to licensing, franchising, sponsorship as well transfers of trademarks and web domains.
