4 steps for registering a trademark
Similarity trademark search
Before filing the application for trademark registration, Eva Troiani law firm suggests you to perform a trademark similarity search.
We specify that you should carry on a similarity trademark search and not a simple identity search and that this search will be conducted in specific IP databases, different from those of governmental or supranational institutions freely available for the public.
We highlight that not carrying out the similarity search could entail unpleasant consequences, such as receiving complaints from the owners of trademark identical with or similar to those of your interest, with inevitably negative and sometimes fatal consequences on your trademark.
Which elements determine the cost of the similarity trademark search
The costs of the similarity trademark search is determined by several variables, including the number of classes to be searched and their type (some classes are most costly because there are more trademarks inside them), the type of trademark subject to examination (whether it is a word mark and if that mark consists of one or more words, if it a figurative mark and which kind of image should be checked), as well as the timing of the search (if there is urgency or not). For all these reasons the costs cannot be estimated in the abstract, but only after an initial assessment of your needs.
Sending estimate of costs, acceptance and payment
After having established whether to conduct the similarity trademark search or to directly proceed with the filing of the application for the registration of your brand, the law firm will send you an estimate of costs: you can contact us to know in detail all costs.
If the estimate of costs is accepted, you can proceed with the payment.
The wire transfer must be done to the following bank details:
