Bulletproof Your Brand     

Get Your Free Basic Search


This is a preliminary search - even if no exact trademark/s was/were found, it should never be assumed that the searched trademark is available for registration.Your trademark was not subjected to the usual criteria when doing a comprehensive search. A comprehensive search is included in our package deals at no extra cost.


Are you getting the real deal?

Make sure your trademark is available before you spend time and money applying.

A basic search is usually done free of charge. This will point to direct conflicts such as exact marks in the same class. You can also do a basic search yourself on the free search facility. Is this enough to guarantee your trademark's availability?

The answer is 'NO' - only a comprehensive search can accurately pinpoint conflicts and establish registrability. Our comprehensive searches are done by experienced, trained searchers with many years of specialised knowledge and are far more in-depth than the basic search. A comprehensive search is done on all available databases and includes confusingly similar marks in all conflicting classes.

Our clients include well-known law firms, legal consultants and brand managers.

The differences between a basic search and a comprehensive search

The basic search

  • Trademark applications based solely on a basic search have a failure rate of up to 80% or more.
  • The results are narrow - it does not check for plurals, synonyms, phonetic-, visual- or conceptual similarities.
  • Conflicting classes are ignored.
  • Only one database is searched.

The comprehensive search

  • Nearly a 100% of trademark applications are successful if a comprehensive search was done.
  • Unlike some service providers, our search methods comply with international industry standards. We search everything.
  • All conflicting classes are searched.
  • We search on multiple databases
