UK & EU Brexit Unlimited

Due to Brexit, it is unlikely that the UK part of EU trade marks will have any effect. Therefore, it is strongly advised to file a separate UK and EU application to ensure that you are protected in both the UK and EU.

This package includes both a UK and EU application for your Trade Mark in unlimited Classes. This means that you do not pay more professional fees for each additional Class you choose. This means that you can apply for the maximum protection possible in the UK and EU at the lowest cost.

A UK and EU registration will ensure that you have exclusive use of your Trade Mark in the UK as well as the other EU Member States regardless of what happens with Brexit.

Only £450 + UKIPO / EUIPO Fees & VAT

To whom is this package suited?

  • Businesses that trade or wish to trade in the UK and EU
  • Businesses that require protection in the UK and EU
  • Start-ups
  • Existing businesses

Cursory UK & EU Searching

EU Searching

Our strategy team will conduct as many brief and cursory searches for identical and very obvious highly similar marks that might conflict with your applications in the Classes that you need to cover. This will allow you to see how unique your trade marks are. It will also give you an indication as to whether there are any high-risk obstacles that could stand in the way of your applications.

You are always welcome to speak to one of our trade mark experts about the results.

*This is not a substitute for a full clearance search.

EU Searching

Our strategy team will conduct as many brief and cursory searches for identical and very obvious highly similar marks that might conflict with your applications in the Classes that you need to cover. This will allow you to see how unique your trade marks are. It will also give you an indication as to whether there are any high-risk obstacles that could stand in the way of your applications.

We will conduct as many Regional Identical Screening Search in the national EU registries, as well as the EU IPO for any identical matches of your trade marks and provide you with the statistical data needed to see whether your trade marks have been applied for, or protected in the EU, by a third party.

These searches are important because your EU applications can be objected to by owners of earlier conflicting trade mark registrations in any EU member state.

After the breakdown of the statistical information, if you require more in-depth searching, we will include the cost of retrieving the data, reviewing and analysing the results, drafting a report, advising on the marks and categorising the risks.

You are always welcome to speak to one of our Trade Mark Experts about the results.

*The above searches are not substitutes for full clearance searches, which will be charged at our standard rate.

Registrability Advice

According to UK and European Trade Mark law, trade marks cannot be registered if they are non-distinctive, describe characteristics of your goods and services, or contain common and generic terms which are used in your trade and industry.

We will advise you on whether your trade mark is actually registrable and recommend a protection strategy which will guarantee that the application is accepted by the examiner at the UKIPO and EUIPO.

6

Drafting Specification of Goods and Services

When you protect a trade mark, it must cover specific goods and services. Our Specification Team will prepare a comprehensive and detailed list of goods and services that you should include in your applications to have the best protection possible.

We always aim to provide you with the broadest and strongest protection so that no other businesses can copy your name, take advantage of your reputation, or tarnish your brand.

7

Unlimited Classes

There are up to 45 different classes of goods and services that a trade mark can be protected for. Our flat-fee policy of £450+VAT which includes both a UK and EU application means that you can include as many Classes of goods and services in your applications for that price.

The only other cost will be the official UK government fees and the EUIPO fees.

This means that you can apply for the best protection possible, confidently knowing that, unlike our competitors, our fees will never increase over £450+VAT, regardless of how many classes you choose. We encourage our clients to shop around with our competitors, who mostly increase their own professional fees when clients apply for more Classes.
