Expanding your trademark protection abroad

Expanding your trademark protection abroad

As your business grows…so will your reputation. You’ve protected your trademark in the UK, it’s just as important to protect it abroad.

The easiest way to do this is through the CTM trademark system. You can apply to OHIM and it will cover you in the 28 member states.

If you want to use your trade mark in countries other than the United Kingdom, you can apply directly to the Trade mark Office in each country.

You can use a single application system to apply for an International trade mark (for certain countries throughout the world) through the Madrid Protocol.

Both these single application systems cover many countries including the United Kingdom and offer a number of other potential benefits, including:

  • less to pay;
  • less paperwork;
  • lower agents’ costs;
  • faster results;
  • easy application

We also boast our own in house US attorney who can file trademark in the US and Canada.
