Frequently asked questions

What are the costs of a trademark agent?

The costs for a trademark registration via trademark agencies composed of fees and costs for research and applying for brand registration. Below you can see what the costs are for the Netherlands, meaning the Benelux and Europe. When it comes to registering in Europe, it is preferable to register in the European Union. You will get registration protection within the whole EU.

We work with fixed rates for all registrations, meaning you’ll exactly know what the costs will be. Very convenient, as you’ll always exactly know what you can expect from us.

What are the benefits of registering through a trademark agency?

It is advisable to register via an agent, If you want to prevent rejection or an objection procedure. An official brand agency has dedicated trademark attorneys. These professionals bear a protected title and did an additional course, making them specialists in registering brands and models. Besides that, we have a broad international network allowing us to register quickly, if need be.

Most law firms don’t have these dedicated trademark attorneys. Simply because most law firms just view intellectual property as a side job. We think that’s odd, because name and logo registrations have to be interpreted to the letter. Especially when it comes to determining the categories with similar names operating in the same international markets.

How does a trademark agent determine categories?

Besides the previously mentioned benefits, a trademark agent can decide which categories to register in for you. this sounds easy, but its custom work and is very delicate. If you don’t determine the categories and register in them, it’ll often happen that you won’t have the brand protection you’d hoped for.

This is because a different brand with a similar name can register or file a complaint, which is hard to win, allowing the newer brand to exist besides yours. Even though they appear very similar.

Determine the categories yourself, and have the risk that an older registered brand will file a complaint against you.

How does opposition at a trademark office work?

If you are about to register your brand or logo, older trademarks will have the opportunity to file a complaint. This may result in opposition or an opposition procedure.

Both parties will have the possibility to specify why they think that registration of the newer brand is permissible or not.

Eventually, a settlement can be arranged for both parties to exist alongside each other, but it may be possible that a court has to determine the verdict in this matter.
