application at our sole discretion. Our trademark service is designed
as a low cost service for small business to register trademarks

The pre-filing can last anywhere between 3 to 12 months. The pre
filing consultation information is confidential and we will not
reveal it to the trademark applicant. The fact that we do not
reveal this information to the applicant allows us to communicate
freely with other parties and to a reach a decision as to the
efficacy of filing the trademark application. If after our pre-filing
discovery and consultation phase we decide the trademark is viable
and file the application and subsequently an objection does arise,
the trademark applicant will be will liable for the costs of the
party objecting to the trademark if he loses the case. The cost
can run into thousands of pounds.

undertake before pre-filing or provide documentation or assistance
if an objection arises.

services we may discover, that the information provided by the
customer may lead to reputational risk or legal compliance problems

and also cancel the initial order
- Due to the increasingly
intensive regulatory and compliance requirements imposed by governments
in relation to commerce we reserve the right to refuse
