Let’s get this show on the road
Taking the plunge and registering your first trade mark or design is an exciting moment for any business. It seems like only yesterday we were creating our very own flamingo brand!
What do you need?
We understand that every business is different and will have different goals and budgets for their IP protection. For those registering their first mark(s), we have therefore created lots of options, in the hope that you can hopefully find an option that fits exactly what you need, for the budget you have available.
Filing and protection packages
The DIY package: £500
Feel that you can manage much of the protection process yourself, but just need some initial guidance and a sounding board before you start? This package provides an hours call with one of our attorneys where we can discuss your requirements and propose a suitable strategy for you, followed by the delivery of a strategic report and a self-filing proposal.
Instruct us here and we will get in touch to organise an initial call with you.
The UK basics package: £995
You know you need help making sure your brand is available for use and can be protected… You also want to ensure that any protection is comprehensive and legally validated.
This package includes a high-level availability search with a concise, digestible report based on our legal assessment of any risks highlighted, as well as our filing of your initial trade mark application.
The full works: £2,995
Want to ensure you are fully protected, with a more in-depth risk assessment report outlining the potential risks to use and protection, in conjunction with our strategic advice in respect of those risks? This, along with your UK trade mark application will be included within this package, along with an annual watching service, which will ensure you are alerted if anyone else tries to protect your brand in the UK (or the world).
