Trade marks for charities

Your charity name and logo are important and obtaining registered trade mark protection should be a crucial part of your charity’s brand protection strategy.

Registering your trade mark may seem like a simple process, but it is important get expert guidance on what to protect and the nuances of the classification system. We can take care of all of this for you and offer clear and transparent costs.

Our expert UK trade mark application service includes:

  • trade mark searches and research into potentially conflicting trade marks;
  • assistance with crafting the appropriate specification to cover all goods and services that you want to protect;
  • responding to any objections to your trade mark raised by the IPO examiners or third parties during publication of the application;
  • registration of your trade mark and management of the renewal process; and
  • ongoing UK and international trade mark portfolio management services and notification of similar third party applications.

Trade mark fees depend on the scope of protection you are seeking – there are fixed application fees set by the Intellectual Property Office which start at £170 and increase as you seek to protect a wider scope of goods and/or services. We offer a 10% discount on our professional fees which can be set at £550+ vat regardless of what you are wanting to protect. Once we help you confirm which goods and/or services you want to protect, we can calculate and set out the IPO fees. We won’t file anything without your confirmation that you are happy to incur the fees and proceed!
