Where will my trademark be protected?
Registering a European Trade Mark (earlier known as the CTM from the words Community Trade Mark) gives you the right to use the mark exclusively in the European Union. The 28 Member States of the EU are the following: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom.
After any future enlargement of the European Union, any European Trademark registered or applied for will automatically extend to the new Member State. However, regarding earlier right in new Member States, we recommend consulting our law firm.
Will my mark be automatically registered?
No. The European trademark system is unique and has some special features and particularities. Not all marks may be eligible to be protected as a CTM. It is therefore essential to consult an experienced trademark attorney before the trademark application.
Who can be the owner of a European Trademark?
Any natural or legal person, irrespective of nationality or place of business, including authorities established under public law.
What documents do I need for the application for a European Trademark?
You will be asked to send us a signed Power of Attorney.
Why is the cost of European trademark registrations so low at Süle Law Firm?
Well, we wouldn’t use the word ’cheap’, but it is inexpensive and affordable indeed. We at Süle Law Firm have actually decided to follow a different business strategy since 2014 and make low fixed prices available for everyone. Of course, we had to make some sacrifices, we have cut back on our advertising and media costs, we use advertisements now in a very narrow manner. Consequently, we do not usually pay for titles such as Best European IP Law Firm of the Year or Most Recommended Intellectual Property Lawyer, since these are bound to the payment of service fees.
