Ownership Search

We search for trademarks by registrant name. This is effective not only for checking for trademarks owned by a third party, but also when you wish to confirm which trademarks you have registered in a certain country.

Negative Check

We check whether a particular name that you intend to register as a trademark is suitable for use in the specified country. We arrange for professionals or experts who will check the particular image or connotation conveyed by that name and whether or not it is likely to cause misunderstandings or offend public order and morals in the relevant area.

Investigation of a company or individual

We search for information about a specified company or individual, such as the registrant of a pre-existing trademark or complainant.
