If someone attempts to register a company name which is identical or similar to a registered trade mark, then they may be infringing the rights of the trade mark owner. Our company name trade mark experts can advise you on all elements of trade mark IP protection relating to:

  • Company name watching
  • Advising whether you have a case for complaint to the Company Names Tribunal (part of the UK Intellectual Property Office which adjudicates on whether a company name has been registered for opportunistic purposes)
  • Preparing and filing complaints to the Company Names Tribunal and preparing evidence in support

Please contact companieshouse@barkerbrettell.co.uk to find out more about company name issues.
