Provide us with your trademark description, a soft copy of the trademark in JPEG format, and your company business registration (or identity for personal registration). At this stage, we can provide a trademark pre-submission search, which provides access to records of existing marks, to identify any existing marks that may pose a conflict to a proposed mark. The records, which may be paper, microfilm or electronic, should be organised to allow for ease in discovering potential conflicting marks.
We will fill in all required documents and the application form, and submit them to the local authority of the country where you want to register your trademark within 1-2 working days. After that, a search of the trademarks records will be conducted and we will wait for 6 months, to meet the requirements (in case the same or a similar trademark has already been registered or been applied for).
Your trademark will be published in the country’s Official Gazette Notice, so anyone can view it. If no objections are issued, you will get a certificate of registration for your trademark within 4-7 months, depending on the country and type of trademark.
