Because trade mark cases can be long, costly procedures, it’s always worth exploring the possibility of resolving disputes out of court. We have many years of experience in negotiating settlements. Mediation or arbitration may often be preferable to going to court, but they can be more expensive than proceedings in the UKIPO, which is traditionally a “low-cost” tribunal.

Often the best safeguard against trade mark disputes is to have us research your proposed brand first. It is always worth checking for the existence of potentially conflicting names and logos before you launch a new brand.
