Trademark Strategy and Application Support

Trademark acquisition is pivotal for business expansion, but it's not solely about securing rights. Our approach encompasses a strategic trademark strategy that considers medium-term plans and competitive trends. We enrich this strategy by integrating economic and digital insights with trademark rights information, thereby significantly boosting the effectiveness of your trademark practices.


When launching a new company or introducing new products and services, it is crucial to conduct a preliminary trademark search to ensure that the trademarks have not been previously registered by another party. Utilizing a trademark that is already registered can result in liability for damages. These searches help identify potential competitors and can also prompt a reassessment of business strategies. We offer comprehensive support for trademark searches across global regions and countries.
