We often find out together with customers that the brand you are using is already in use. We can often find solutions in a joint conversation.
Problems often arise in the context of brand research that the customer was not aware of before. If it turns out that your trademark is not registrable in this form or you violate the rights of older trademarks, we will be happy to advise you on how to proceed.
Knowing that you are infringing the rights of an older trademark is important because only with this knowledge can you plan the steps that will help avoid the infringement. The owner of the earlier trademark is then often not even aware that there has been an infringement or steps can be taken to prevent claims for damages or injunctive relief from being enforced.
Some customers also use a variety of brands and logos. We can help you to use the brands and logos on the right safely so that the brand is actually used.
We can also help you with questions about trademark infringements or questions about how you should proceed against third parties who need your brand Miss. Paragraph Please contact us about these topics.

What is a trademark?
A trademark can be a sign of all kinds, in particular words, including personal names, or images, letters, numbers, colors, the shape or packaging of the goods or sounds, insofar as such signs are capable of distinguishing the goods or services of one company from those of other companies and to be presented clearly and unambiguously.
Why is it important to trademark your brand?
A trademark application or an entry in the official EUIPO trademark register can increase the value of your brand and the company.
