  • Investigation/examination of trademark registration

    In order to speed up the registration of a trademark, a priority trademark registration search can be carried out for the denomination that you wish to register as a trademark, which allows for the detection of others that could be similar in one or more classes, and that could come into conflict. The registration records are contrasted with complete trademark and distinctive symbol databases at the local, European Union and international levels.
  • Trademark application and registration prosecution

    After receiving advice on the best protection option in accordance with the international agreements in force at all times, and once the data of the registration holder, name, logo or graphical symbol to be registered, and the international classes and countries to be included in the register, have been incorporated onto our SHIP HELM platform, it takes just a few seconds to obtain and approve a budget for registering the trademark with the EUIPO, the WIPO, or with the national trademark office of the established countries.
  • Transfers and licenses

    The SHIP Global IP team also advises on operations of assignment, sale or purchase of trademarks, or in cases of transfer of use or exploitation to third parties worldwide.

Registering a trademark provides protection against unauthorized use and counterfeiting, increases market visibility by differentiating you from the competition, conveys reliability, and helps build the reputation of your company, brand, or product. Our global network of intellectual property agents helps you maintain the economic value that your trademark portfolio contributes to your business.
