Register your trademark in the United Kingdom
What about the Brexit ?
Brexit's consequences on your trademark rights
The Brexit, not for me !
You own a European trademark registration by December 31, 2020.
If your brand is REGISTERED before December 31, 2020 (which means that the registration proceedings are completely over), you have nothing to do.
Registered trademarks should be automatically "cloned" on the UK register, without any formality on your part, and at no extra cost. They will get a specific registration number for the UK and will need to be renewed separately in the UK when they expire.
You own a European trademark application, still under examination, by December 31, 2020.
Unregistered European trademark application owners will not have their trademarks "cloned" automatically on the UK register.
These owners should have 9 months to apply for a UK national trade mark that will allow them to benefit from the filing date of their earlier mark. We are still waiting for the details of this procedure. The normal UK filing fees will have to be paid.
Let's apply post-Brexit !
You do not own a trademark in Europe or in the UK.
Those who never filed a European or UK application before December 31, 2020 will have to file a national UK application at the UKIPO.
Our firm can represent you before the UKIPO. So don't hesitate anymore !
We offer the following rates for a trademark application in the UK :
- Professional fees (including an identical prior search) : 250€ excl. tax
- UKIPO official taxes : 230€ for the 1st class, 60€ per supplementary class
