Trademark Application and Registration

In order to cope with your changing needs, as from startup business to the business growth, we are providing full range of business services.

In today's economy, trademark is a valuable asset for companies/business(es) of any size. Registering grants you valuable rights to the trademarks. It is commonly used for business(es) in product branding, invisible goodwill & assets protection and group strategy planning. When an unregistered trademark or sign is used for a certain period of time, it establishes some rights in having certain trademark rights. However, these rights are quite limited when compared to the rights of a registered trademark owner. Hence, trademark registration is prima facie evidence of your ownership of the trademarkand the exclusive right to use the mark in connection with the goods and/or services listed in the registration.

We may help in trademark application and registration in Hong Kong, China, Macau, EU, Asian countries etc.. Generally, client will request a preliminary record search for the availability or similarity of your mark or sign in different classes** of products/services. Once available, application may be started and the process normally takes about 6-9 months in Hong Kong (on the conditions that there are no defects/deficiency or third parties' objection during the application process. Once registered, the validity is 10 years (in Hong Kong) with trademark registration date at the date of submission of application (where applicable). Process is similar in different countries but with different registration processing time and the validity period.

(Please note that trademark is normally valid geographically, registered trademark in one area/country does not mean the trademark owner is having same rights of the trademark in other countries/areas. It explains why most international trademarks may be applied and registered in different countries at the same time.)

During the trademark application, applicant must state clearly the classes of products or services the trademark is fallen into. All products/goods are classes from 1 to 34 where services from classes 35 to 45. Please refer below for the international classifications.
