Intellectual Property registration is an important component in the development & growth of a business.
Why do I need this service?
Intellectual Property is important:
- big & successful companies (Google®, Apple®, etc) have them ;
- protection against unauthorized use of your tradermark and/or design (once in a while they do come out~) ;
- better identification of source from your customers: you gain legal monopoly over the usage of a trademark ;
- licensing and royalties strategy ;
- you do not need to spend a lot of time on your application and you can keep concentrating on your business.
- Hong Kong
- European Union (EU)
- United Kingdom

Where should I register my trademark and/or design?
Usually you have to cover the area(s) where your customers are AND where your company is registered. If your market is global and customers are all over the world: you can use our ranking above to register your first trademark, this will give you an anchor of Intellectual Property.
Can you give me a strategy example?
Let’s say that you have this great service called YOUWANTIT™ which is not registered yet. The usual path is to register the trademark where you are located or where your company is located. However there is a huge benefit of registering this brand somewhere else. Let’s say that you register this brand in the UK, as soon as you file there:
- you can file the same application in any other jurisdictions in the world within 6 months: by keeping the same owner in each jurisdiction you will not have to make a branch there nor to hire a correspondent (and it is cheaper than the WIPO route) ;
- you will not have any translation fees, as everything will be in English ;
- you can license the use of IP to your local company, and extract royalties ;
- you can decide your royalties rate (between 0.1% and 15%) or even make it variable depending on the factor ;
- you can easily manage your brand separately of your business.
Can I combine your Nominee service with this service?
Absolutely! For intellectual property holding there is a special discounted price for a Nominee, see our fees page. This lower the costs dramatically: you will not have to incorporate a company in each jurisdiction.
What do I get for the stated price?
- Summary search for similarity of your trademark/design1
