Services to complement your business
Trade Mark Registration
Trademark registration in the UK, the EU, the US and Australia
Trademarks provide the best way to protect your names, logos and brands.
Without a trademark you will find it difficult to protect your most valuable business asset and prevent other people from using your name.
We register and manage trade marks across the world for businesses both large and small. We are able to file directly in a number of countries including the UK, the EU, and Australia. Each of these countries, together with the US, is also able to be ordered and paid for online.
Please note that you will require the following information to apply online:
1. The name you would like to protect
2. The categories in which you would like to register the Trade Mark. We have provided a complete breakdown of all the categories of goods and services currently available on our trade mark classes page. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding this.
3. The name of the proposed registrant of the trade mark - this can be either a individual or a company name.
4. The address for the owner of the Trade Mark - this can be any address worldwide.
ALL OUR FEES INCLUDE GOVERNMENT FEES AND TAXES
Trade Mark Classes
Trade Marks are registered for the goods and services for which you do business. You will need to choose which classes best represent your business activities. You should also think about what you may be using your name for in the next few years, as this may be more than you currently use the name for today. It is generally more cost effective to register more classes at the same time, as marks can not be added to in the future.
There are currently 45 trade mark classes, 34 of which relate to physical goods, the others of which relate to services.
A full list of these can be found on our trade mark classes page.
Foreign Trade Marks
Through our network of agents we are able to register trade marks in over 50 countries. We partner with firms who share the same ethos as ourselves and seek to deliver trade mark registrations at affordable prices and for fixed fees wherever possible.
We provide a full range of consultancy services, from pure IP consultancy through to business strategy and development.

Intellectual Property Consultancy
Intellectual Property is the bedrock of most modern successful businesses. Whether it is the value of a brand or the patents protecting your processes or products, the value created by a company's intangible assets will almost certain surpass all its tangible assets.
As a provider of IP consultancy services, we look at how we can maximise the value tied up within a business and the IP it has created. We help business owners identify these assets and advise on how best to deploy them within their respective marketplace.
As an asset class which is able to be licensed, sold and cross charged within a group, IP provides boards and shareholders with the potential to maximise returns on capital. IP Lab can provide you with board expertise, assist with brand valuations or provide general IP advice to help your business succeed.
BEPS (Base Erosion Profit Shifting) asks businesses some key questions
What do you do?
Where do you generate IP?
Where/how does IP value get added and by whom?
Who exploits the IP value?
How much do you charge for your IP?
We can help with the answers to all these questions to ensure that your business is ready for BEPS
In all cases, we like to think of BEPS compliance as being a good opportunity to ask three key questions of the business. Namely, WHY? HOW? and WHAT IS THE VALUE?
In addition to our IP specific consultancy, we also provide more general business advice. Whether this is brand strategy advice or general business consultancy, we can help you achieve your goals. Contact us to see how we can help your business.
