Comprehensive global trademark consultants
In addition to a complete advisory service on how to properly protect previous trademarks in each country, SHIP Global IP advises on the most appropriate protection for distinctive symbols of new products, services and companies.
Trademark registration feasibility reports
The legal reports, based on the prior investigation of the registration records and on the applicable legal precepts, incorporate the professional opinion of the team of trademark specialists on the feasibility of registration, as well as suggested amendments to correct potential obstacles during the process.
The company has incorporated a permanent control service for all new trademark applications that are continuously being published in the different domestic and international bulletins in order to identify possible interferences of new third-party applications with the client's trademark portfolio, thus enabling the exercise of the right of opposition.
Trademark status, maintenance and renewal
SHIP HELM has added monitoring capabilities and a trademark renewal notice service that constantly monitors the trademark portfolio throughout its legal life to help plan payment of fees, renewals, declarations of use, oppositions, office actions, etc., in advance.
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.
