What is a Trade Mark Search Report?
Before you submit an application to register a trade mark, it’s a good idea to conduct a detailed clearance search to make sure there are no similar marks which are already registered or pending. You cannot register a trade mark which is ‘substantially identical to’ or ‘deceptively similar with’ another trade mark.
Our experienced intellectual property lawyers can produce a full availability search report so you can make an informed decision before proceeding with your trade mark application.
