In today’s business world, it is imperative for companies to use the register of trademarks. In this way, these rights will allow our clients to distinguish the products and services they are marketing. The aim is to get closer to the consumer and to enhance the value of your company with respect to your competitors in order to avoid confusion in the marketplace. In this way, a brand, logo or a certain corporate image are intangible goods that are part of the heritage and business value of a company. Therefore, these intangible goods must be protected against third parties in order to grant an exclusive right of use to their owner that allows him/her to distinguish his/her products or services.
At Letslaw we advise our clients on how to register the exclusive right of use of the trademark, offering a previous advice, with reports on the viability of the trademark, during and after. We have the capacity, the team and the necessary skills to proceed with national trademark registration before the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office (SPTO), European Union trademark registration through the European Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) and international trademark registration through the International Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).
