The power of the companies is measured by considering the value of their trademarks, instead of their physical assets.

Trademark is the most valuable and intellectual capital of your company, and registration is the only way to protect it. "Trademark Registration" is the most important part of the branding strategy in which you invest, and it prevents the continuous risks that your trademark can face.

Determining trademark category and commodity

In addition to the trademark name, it offers a determination of suitable classes and commodities (sub-classes) according to their area of activity where they will be used and prevents future issues. Some similar or complementary subclasses can be placed under some different classes. In addition to the current area of activity, new class/commodity should be determined according to the strategic goals and vision for new areas of activity that can emerge as a result of the growing market share. A lack of class preferences may cause a well-known brand not to be used in new areas of activity. The applications made in unsuitable class and commodities may reduce the probability of your trademark's protection in your area of activity and your ability to compete.

Why should I get my trademark registered abroad?

Trademarks are protected only in the countries in which they are registered. To protect your trademark abroad, you can apply for registration in the country where you will use your trademark. To apply in multiple countries at the same time, you can apply to the systems of these countries, and prevent extra time and costs.

There are 6 systems for trademark registration applications abroad;

Territorial application
Means that you apply for the trademark to the official authority of that country via an attorney located in the country.
