Our Firm is responsible for the drafting and filing of the application for registration of a distinctive sign. We follow up at all stages of the procedure: examination of formalities, publication of the intellectual property gazette, examination of recordability, issuance of the resolution and the title.
- Background and Recordability Search
We conducted an unofficial background check of the chosen name at no additional cost. It is further recommended to carry out the official search. With the results obtained we develop a report that determines the possibilities of the success of the registration.

We give you a detail with the international class or classes that we recommend to adequately protect the distinctive sign.

It also includes prior notice of the expiration of your intangible asset for the term of the mark and distinctive sign.
