For each category of trade and for each country within the European Union, it is necessary to search published records for prior commercial use of each trademark or service mark so as to avoid possible trademark infringement.
Geissler & Associates offers legal research in English-language publications and public records for possible prior trademark infringement in each jurisdiction where trademark registration is sought.
Geissler & Associates offers legal services in relation to the registration of trademarks in the United Kingdom.
