TRADEMARKS

Make your mark on the industry

A crucial tool for the success of your brand

More and more companies view the trademark as the best vehicle to promote their brand’s values. Creating and consolidating a strong trademark obviously depends on the work a company puts in through the years, but also on ensuring their trademarks are properly protected.

For this reason, it’s crucial to work with qualified consultants who can properly assist you through the various stages of trademark registration.

 

Value

A trademark is a strategic asset for any business. It is a factor of distinction that lets you stand out from competitors, but also a fundamental element in its brand communication, to the point of becoming a major part of a company’s value.

Protection

Once you’ve chosen the distinctive sign to associate with your product or service, it’s time to decide where to protect the trademark – either on the national, EU or international level – and what form of registration is most beneficial.

Direction

Trademarks are the signposts of the marketplace, informing and directing consumers during purchasing processes, and are thus a “cultural resource” on which most people – consciously or subconsciously – rely on.

Precision

Trademarks must be registered, used, managed and protected in a professional manner in order to comply with specific standards and regulations, and should be appropriately differentiated by country and/or geographic region.
