Watching Services and Enforcement
Strong brands are assets worth defending. Our watching services can alert you when competitors seek rights in conflicting brands in markets worldwide. We work with established watching agencies to notify you of conflicting applications in markets of interest, and counsel on the level of risk they pose. We can help you challenge competitor brands early and cost-effectively, before they reach registration, or seek cancellation of granted registrations.
We are experienced in advising on conflicts between brands including trade mark infringement and passing off. Our certified litigators can create and manage a cost-effective litigation team or work as part of a larger, multiple-office team of professionals. Where settlement is an option, we can navigate you through the options and represent you in negotiations and mediation.
