Owner search

With the help of trademark search can be clarified, which trademark rights are at a certain owner’s disposal.



At regular intervals you receive current information on latest relevant news in terms of trademarks and designs. Monitoring search offers a good opportunity to be fast and fully informed about new registrations by competitors. Thus you can respond promptly and timely to competing applications/registrations.

In addition to bibliographic data, the excerpts cover a list of required categories and a representation of the designs.

We would be pleased to send you excerpts of designs (Germany/EU/IR) by post, fax or email.

Please note that carried out trademark search does not cover other name rights, e.g. domain names, title protection/copyright or entries in Commercial Register.


Own research
