Trade Marks

A trade mark is used to identify your brand and distinguish your goods and services from those other traders. A trade mark may be a word, phrase, logo, picture, sound, smell, shape, and aspects of packaging or a combination of these.

Once recognised by the public a trade mark can be a very valuable business asset generating sales and revenue. By registering your trade mark you will obtain the legal right to use, license or sell your trade mark and should be a factor in the marketing strategy and intellectual property port folio of every business.
