Trademark and IP Services


The Intellectual Property (IP) associated with a business name or system can be one of its most valuable assets – but only if it is properly exploited and protected. Any business that wishes to establish a national or international identity should take steps to protect the use of its name, logo or other IP. This is preferably done at the outset when it is simpler, more efficient and more effective.

It is commonly assumed that registering a company name or website is sufficient to protect that name. While this may afford some protection if nobody else has registered a similar trademark, it rarely gives any protection if they have. And if somebody registers a similar trademark later, there may be difficulties in continuing to use that company name or website. The general rule is “trademark it or lose it”.

Trademarks are the most cost effective way for businesses to protect their name, products and reputation overseas. Every country has its own rules to manage and register trademarks, and Sovereign will work within those rules to protect your business.
