PATENT & TM ATTORNEYS PRACTICE
Assessment of protectability of a trademark
Before starting the registration of a trademark, our trademark attorneys can render full and comprehensive consultation in respect of inherent protectability of the designation chosen by the client as the trademark. Such advice is provided, taking into account the specifics of the current legislation in the sphere of trademarks and the existing practice and current approach of Rospatent and the Patent offices of other countries to examination of trademarks applied for registration. The preliminary assessment of protectability of trademarks allows to avoid unnecessary additional costs and helps in selection of a designation for registration as a trademark. Furthermore, such an assessment of protectability may be useful, if it is necessary to challenge legal protection of a trademark based on its non-registrability, for example in case of a dispute.
