French or European Union Trademark Filing

Why Should a Lawyer File my French or EU Trademark ?

Complex Procedure

Trademark filing is complex and must be done rigorously:

  • Prior trademarks search (optional but recommended),
  • Trademark choice,
  • Class, products and services choice,
    • INPI or EUIPO suggestions are not specific enough. Choosing more precise products and services is highly recommended,
  • EUIPO or INPI filing,
  • If applicable, third-party opposition to the trademark registration during the opposition period (two or three months, depending on where the trademark is filed).

Legal Certainty

By using a trademark lawyer, you ensure that your trademark will be filed as required by INPI or EUIPO standards : compliance with substantive and procedural criteria (distinctiveness, consistant with public order and good morals), and risk analysis (prior trademarks search).

You diminish the risk of trademark application rejection or modification, as well as the duration of the registration period.
