Trademark Searches

Share:

Entrepreneurs spend substantial amounts of money building their company’s brand image and marketing their products and services. For this reason, such operations should be conducted cautiously and should be preceded by trademark research in order to check whether a trademark can be protected and does not infringe third parties’ rights. Trademark research is run by our experienced team of patent attorneys and industrial property experts. The service involves carrying out searches in specialist databases. It allows to better plan business strategies and protect the company against conflict with another business.

Our clients who use trademark search services enjoy a wide range of benefits. A duly conducted trademark research becomes a tool which can be used to:

  • assess the distinctiveness and possibility of registering a sign as a trademark
  • minimize the risk of infringement before applying for registration, therefore saving time and money related to placing products bearing the proposed sign on the market
  • create the most advantageous strategies for the sale and promotion of products and services
  • draw up guidelines for brand and trademark development
  • protect the company’s assets in a more efficient manner
  • modify the mark and list of goods and services in the application so as to increase the chances for obtaining protection
  • monitor competitors’ activities

The research process consists in searching and analyzing registered trademarks and those pending registration which are identical or similar to our client’s sign. We recommend that our clients conduct a search before applying for trademark registration or placing a product or service bearing such a mark on the market. We provide support of experienced patent attorneys and highly qualified research experts. We use publicly available databases of the Patent Office of the Republic of Poland (PPO), the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) as well as specialist commercial research tools. We are aware that trademark research is a service of major importance for making business decisions, therefore, we make sure that our reports and opinions are transparent and contain precise and practical recommendations.
