Trademark Registration in European Union
With this assignment you can order a trademark registration in European Union (EU trademark). We will take care of everything that is necessary for the professional preparation of the trademark registration in European Union, submission of the trademark application in European Union and send the trademark certificate to you.
The price for trademark registration in European Union includes our professional fees as well as the official trademark office fees for the trademark registration in European Union without opposition.
The trademark registration order for European Union includes the following tasks:
First, we check whether the trademark being registered is entitled to protection in European Union (absolute grounds of refusal). Not all trademarks can be registered as trademarks. For instance, merely descriptive terms for the respective goods and services may not be registered as a trademark.
To avoid collisions between your trademark registration in European Union and older trademarks we recommend to conduct a trademark search in European Union which must be ordered separately.
We will e-mail you the prepared trademark registration documents for your EU trademark for your approval and file it then.
Once the trademark was registered at the EUIPO we will send you the certificate.
