About the Service
A trademark can be defined as the unique identity that makes your company, product, or service stand out from the rest. A registered trademark is your business’s intellectual property/ intangible asset. It protects the investment made into creating trust and loyalty among your customers. The registration provides the right to sue against others who try to copy your trademark and prevents others from using a similar trademark to the one registered by you.

1. What are the steps required for trademark registration?
Step 1: Trademark Search
Once you give us the basic information about what you want to trademark and the industry you operate in, our experts will do a thorough search across the trademark database. This is to check whether the mark you want to register is available or not.
Once you decide on an available trademark, we move to step 2.
Step 2: Class Selection and Document Collection
The next task is to select the appropriate class(es) for your business. You need not worry too much though. Our experts will guide you in selecting the right classes to cover all aspects of your business. Simultaneously, you can start uploading all the required documents (list given below) for trademark registration in your dashboard.
Step 3: Trademark Application Filing
Once you upload all the documents, our team will proceed to verify them. Then the trademark application form will be filled on your behalf and submitted along with the documents. Our team will ensure that your application is accurate and error-free.
We will keep you updated throughout the process and watch out for any notifications from the Trademark Registry until the registration is complete.
Congratulations! You can now start using the symbol ™ as the application has been submitted!
Step 4: Trademark Objection (in some cases)
Sometimes the examiner might have some questions about your application. This is sent to you as a trademark objection notice and you need to respond to it within 30 days. Our experts can craft a strong objection response and guide you in submitting the right documents and proofs.
Step 5: Trademark Opposition (in some cases)
There is also a chance for a third party to oppose your application. In that case, you have to submit a counterstatement to the Registrar within 2 months stating why the opposition isn’t valid. Based on your response the Registrar may either dismiss the opposition or call for a hearing.
