We have conducted a trademark clearance search

In January 2020, a client contacted us, who commissioned us to conduct a trademark clearance search of a wordmark for goods in Classes 9 and 11 of the Nice Classification of Goods and Services. Our client intends to register a European Union trademark. After the client provided us with the necessary information, we conducted the trademark clearance search and it turned out that there are two earlier similar trademarks for identical goods. We have described the results of the search in a legal opinion and provided it to the client, recommending to chose another mark, as it is highly likely an opposition to be filed if the mark has been filed registration. Our client has taken into account our recommendations.
