Intellectual Property Rights are becoming more and more important in today’s business world.
Whether you wish to register a trade mark, a design, a domain name or a patent in Greece, Europe or even worldwide, our experience and organisation can help you efficiently.
Trade marks are essential when setting up a new business and can potentially comprise an enormous asset when managed and maintained correctly. A trade mark owner may grant licenses to other enterprises in exchange for a license fee. Conversely, a business might profit from using trade marks of other companies. With understandable, simplified steps we can guide you on the European registration procedure of a trade mark at the OHIM (Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market) in Alicante (Spain) and can assist you with organizing an equivalent procedure for the USA. We can complete a check of availability of a trade mark within 48 hours (during normal working days) and help you draft trade mark licenses in order to properly exploit your trade mark.
Patents, on the contrary, protect new inventions and grant the owner an exclusive monopoly of 20 years. Registering a patent and its successful protection require utmost caution and compliance with complex procedures which we are in a good position to assist you with. Within a short time period we can complete procedures for registration of a European patent at the EPO (European Patent Office) in Munich and help you defend your patent against potential infringements.
