Home > Trade marks > Filing and prosecution

Our team of trade mark attorneys is highly experienced in the filing and the prosecution of trade mark applications. We are responsible for nearly 30,000 applications and registrations on the UK Register alone. As a result, our attorneys are skilled in overcoming objections and successfully prosecuting applications through to registration before the UK Registry and at the EUIPO.

Our attorneys handle their own hearings at the UK Intellectual Property Office (UKIPO) in prosecution cases where prima facie registrability is the issue. We have a depth of experience which helps us achieve excellent results for our clients.

The group has particular experience of securing, defending and attacking registrations for marks that are considered difficult to register. They handle a high volume of prosecutions, oppositions and other registry actions at all levels within national and international registries and courts. This necessarily means that our attorneys are completely up-to-date with the very latest trade mark law and registry procedures that are evolving almost daily.

We have a tried, tested and trusted network of independent firms which we use for filing and prosecution work around the world. The fact that we are not tied to any of them means that we can always select the best person for the job in any territory and can take an objective view of the advice and work product provided to ensure a quality which meets our own high standards.
