Introduction To Worldwide Trade Marks

Trade marks can be registered in virtually every industrialised country of the world, either as separate national applications or via regional and/or international systems such as the EU, Madrid Protocol, OAPI and ARIPO trade mark systems. Once a trade mark application has been made for a particular trade mark, one or more foreign trade mark applications can be filed that take the date of the earlier filed trade mark application. Otherwise, the foreign trade mark applications are allocated the date of when they are filed.

Registration procedures are generally similar in countries outside the UK and Europe, although in some countries a trade mark application may be advertised for opposition purposes before it is examined by the Trade Mark Office.

We are able to facilitate the filing, prosecution and maintenance of trade marks and trade mark Applications in most countries in the world as a result of our extensive network of qualified foreign associates.
