The name of your business is one of your most valuable assets as without it, you’re no longer easy to identify from the crowd. It’s no surprise that others will want to copy you if your name is catchy, distinctive and reputable but finding out that somebody else has a trade mark for your name can be an unexpected surprise.
Our trade mark team can help you determine the uniqueness of your name by providing sound and comprehensive advice on the similar and identical names that are already registered as trade marks. Doing this at the start of your business makes perfect sense as it can identify a serious problem that may arise later on down the line.
For example, you may start building a successful brand only to find that another competitor owns a trade mark to your name and can effectively force you to rebrand. This happens more often than you think and it’s usually at a time when you least expect it to happen. Being in possession of a registered trade mark for your name provides excellent peace of mind.
We can provide comprehensive trade mark search reports for the UK, Europe and the rest of the world.
