Your trademark serves to distinguish your goods or services from those of other companies. It can consist of words, letters, numbers or even colours and sounds.
In particular, word marks that are to be used internationally should first be checked for their suitability in other countries. SchollTrans provides assistance here with native speakers who are familiar with the cultural habits of their home countries.
Trademark protection is granted by an entry in the Register of the German Patent and Trade Mark Office (DPMA). As the DPMA does not check whether your trademark is identical or similar to an existing form, you should engage the services of our law firm partners to ensure from the very beginning that your intended trademark does not violate the rights of third parties. Otherwise an objection could be raised before the DPMA against your trademark and that it may have to be removed. Proceedings against your trademark can also take the form of a warning or suit before a civil court.
