Strategy Session

Service Description

whats involved

Something’s rattled you, and you want to take action. Perhaps you’ve seen a competitor sailing a little too close to your shore with their website copy, or it’s happened to another business you know and you want to take pro-active action. Maybe you’re shocked to have stumbled across a brazen copycat on Instagram (have they no shame?!)

My Strategy Sessions are designed for you if you are facing an issue and don’t know how to handle it. We can answer your questions and create a plan of action that will put you back in control and leave you feeling focused and refreshed.

Trade mark Registration

Service Description

whats involved

The most common pitfall for trademarks is waiting until something goes wrong to act. I regularly work with clients who come to me because they have had their brand identity copied, discovered another business using their name or have received a letter telling them they have stepped on a competitor’s toes.

That’s why I’ve made it simple and affordable for you to protect your trademark today, before this happens. Stake your claim now, and avoid costly and messy wrangles later on. The longer you wait, the more vulnerable your business becomes. 

Before the application is made, an extensive search is completed to make us aware of any similar trademarks. 

The application requires a description of goods in the relevant classes (the field your products or services belong to). I’ll help you identify your aims for the trademark and the classes to apply for, as well as helping you describe your products and services in accurate terms.  

I submit the application and handle all the communication to ensure a smooth process, notifying you of each milestone along the way.

why you need me

• I handle all the documents, and decipher the legal jargon for you.
• I advise which territories and classes you need to protect.
• I save you precious time.

Due Diligence Watch

Service Description

whats involved

This is such an important project for any business that is working on a new business name, strapline, or identities for products or services.

It is the first step we take when we apply for a Trademark Registration, but in some cases it makes sense to do it as a standalone project, just to get the lie of the land.

A due diligence search is relatively quick and inexpensive and will allow you to determine if your proposed or current name can be freely used, before you spend precious time or money developing it further. It’s also a great way to establish how successful a full trademark application is likely to be before you start.

I will conduct a comprehensive search in the relevant databases to see if similar properties are being used and in which classes.

I will provide you with a full report and advise where your opportunities lie.

Let's Work Together

why you need me

• I understand how the databases work and what to look for.
• I can confirm that your brand isn’t already in use by someone else before you invest time and money in it.
• If you are a copywriter or brand strategist, I can clear your concepts on behalf of a client before they invest further.

Brand Watch

Service Description

whats involved

If you think your business doesn’t need full registration protections yet, or if you’re waiting to invest in these protections later on, you can still monitor the trademark database for UK registrations .

This database is available to everyone for free, but it can be difficult to run proper searches yourself and to be 100% sure that similar brands aren’t seeking trademark protection in the same classes as you. You’d also have to remember to check back regularly to keep on top of any new registrations.

Use my Brand Watch service and sleep-easy knowing that anything that concerns you will be flagged up before it becomes a problem.

I will conduct a comprehensive search in the relevant databases to see if similar properties are being used and in which classes.

I will provide you with a full report and advise where your opportunities lie.

I will continue to monitor registrations and will send you a monthly report highlighting any application that should concern you.

Let's Work Together

why you need me

• You are a new or smaller business who wants help protecting their business name but without investing in a full trademark registration yet.
• You’re a larger brand who wants to keep an eye on registered trademarks, words or phrases that may be used in future.
