Our German trademark packages all include a search component in relation to a trademark search for earlier registered trademarks. Before applying for a German trademark, you should always search for earlier trademarks or company names which may possibly oppose your own application. The German Patent and Trademark Office does not conduct any trademark searches. Therefore, there is a considerable risk that an owner of an earlier trademark will object to your trademark or send you a warning letter. This may lead to the deletion of your trademark, a claim for injunctive relief or a claim for compensation of damages. By means of a professional trademark search, you can significantly reduce this risk of a legal collision with earlier rights. This is significantly cheaper than the cost of a warning letter or a change of name. Let us provide you with our advice. Our German trademark attorneys will be happy to assist you.
