Trade Mark Searching and Clearance

Searches are a vital part of selecting a trade mark. A thorough search of the Australian Trade Mark Register must be undertaken before a proposed Trade Mark can be registered. The purpose of this process is to determine the commercial and legal risk of infringing the intellectual property rights of a third party and/or to identify any other obstacles you may encounter in attempting to register your trade mark.

We conduct a full trade mark searching and clearance service and our trade mark specialists will provide a comprehensive report outlining any obstacles to the use or registration of a trade mark  including a discussion of relevant prior conflicting marks and provide a strategy to reduce or address any risks so that you can make important business decisions in confidence.

IP Solved have substantial experience in providing both global clearance for new international brands and clearance in major market countries (such as the U.S., Japan, S. Korea, India), all of which examine on relative grounds and we can then “bundle” a report which includes an number of countries tailored to the present and future marketing needs of clients.
