How to Register a Trademark
Below is our step by step guide on how to register a trademark with the EFSAG Group. We have provided useful links to give you detailed information on each of the steps required within the registration process.
1. Do your research
It is important all mark holders fully understand the requirements and scope that different types of marks adopt, depending on the jurisdictions they are registered in. Trademarks must satisfy several conditions in order to qualify for registration.
2. Design your mark
If you require your mark to be designed, EFSAG can provide consultancy and design according to your specifications. View our Trademark Design page for more information.
3. Decide where to register
Use our World Trademark section to choose which jurisdictions you wish to register your mark in, and learn about the countries and relevant registries you can perform a registration in.
4. Register your mark
Complete our online Trademark Application form and detail the selected jurisdictions you require your mark to be registered in. You will also be required to upload your representation of the mark in the application form. If you require assistance or consultation prior to your application, Contact Us using our online contact form.
Depending on the jurisdictions selected, we will conduct a comprehensive trademark search to ensure the mark is available. View our Trademark Search page to see what our search service encompasses. Upon success of the search, we will register your mark with the appropriate registries in the selected jurisdictions you prefer. View our Trademark Registration services page for further details.
5. Keep your mark active
Once your mark is registered we will manage the maintenance of the trademark through our renewal services. View our Trademark Renewal page for information on how EFSAG can assist you with you with your renewal.
