Applications and Renewals
We handle both national and international trade mark applications. Our services are tailored to the needs of every individual client and include, if required, availability searches, analysis and strategic advice on trademark selection, classification and the geographical scope of protection.
We moreover handle both national and international trademark renewals and offer tactical advice on portfolio management. We understand that a trademark renewal is not only a matter of a payment of a fee but rather a strategic tool to ensure that a trademark portfolio matches the client´s products or services as well as his brands.
We also offer comprehensive advice on the protection of existing trademarks and assist our clients in conducting license agreements and other agreements relating to the utilization of their trademarks.
We handle all opposition matters and offer both vast experience and legal expertise in such proceedings.
Furthermore, we apprehend that once a trademark has been registered it is fundamental for its owner to actively ensure that no other confusingly similar trademarks are granted protection in the countries where it is registered. We accordingly offer both strategic advice on possible opposition proceedings and represent our clients in such proceedings when a decision to oppose has been taken.
We have an established international network through which we are able to assist our clients in taking appropriate measures throughout the world.
Conflict Handling and Enforcement
We offer valuable legal expertise and experience once it comes to conflicts pertaining to trademarks and enforcement of trademark rights. We offer comprehensive advice on appropriate measures tailored to the client’s needs and the nature of the matter at hand. Our highly experienced attorneys are licensed to practice before the Supreme Court of Iceland and can thus represent our clients at all instances of the Icelandic court system.
Furthermore, we can assist our clients in attacking infringements in most jurisdictions through our well established international network.
