Trademarks, Trade Names and Domain Names

A brand reflects the reputation of an organisation and serves as its face. We can help you protect your trademarks, enhance the value of your trademark portfolio and thus help you increase your market share.

Regardless of the stage of development your business is at, our trademark experts are ready to help you select and register the right trademarks, obtain approvals, create the right strategy and effectively manage your registration processes. In addition to our support in Finland and the European Union, we have an extensive network of international partners to assist you with trademark matters worldwide.

In addition to national registrations in different countries, you can also apply for trademark protection in the EU. This provides cost-effective protection for your trademarks in all European Union countries with a single application.

Brand and trademark protection is an ongoing effort and requires a strategy that is aligned with your business plan and future goals. We take these key elements into account when developing strategies to manage your trademark portfolio. This also includes preliminary research, monitoring and defending of rights.
