As Irish and European Trademark and Design Right Attorneys, we represent clients in the Irish, Community and WIPO international trademark registers. We also offer ipr advice for negotiations, court and alternative dispute processes. We negotiate trademark assignments, trademark licenses, franchises, business sales and more.
We help our clients every step of the way during the trademark application. This includes responding to objections and oppositions. We can also bring opposition proceedings on your behalf. When we act in trademark opposition and infringement actions, we handle everything from initial correspondence through negotiations, including co-existence agreements, on to hearings and appeals in the trademarks office, High and Supreme Courts, or alternative dispute resolution processes. We can do this because we are solicitor trademark agents.
Commercial Agreements: Trademark Licenses, Assignments, Franchising, Business Sales
To help you make money from your intellectual property rights, we draft and negotiate commercial agreements dealing with trademarks, design right, patent and other ipr rights. These include trademark licences that allow others to use your trademarks or other intellectual property assets and drafting assignments of trademark and intellectual property rights, including from employees and contractors.
When contractors and employees are involved in creating ipr, check with us to make sure that your business is the legal owner of the rights.
We have negotiated franchise agreements, business and asset sales involving intellectual property assets and goodwill, and purchases of ipr and goodwill from liquidators. You can also use registered trademarks and other registered rights to secure finance. When you are selling a business or looking for investment, registered IP rights can make your business more valuable and give you a better negotiating position.
There are important regulatory obligations that must be complied with and recorded in the relevant trademark registers when delaing with registered rights. We can manage these matters on your behalf while you get on with business.
