Trade Mark Searching

Trade Mark Searching

At Davies Collison Cave, we recommend a professional search is completed of the Singapore Trade Marks Register prior to adopting a mark for use to ensure freedom to use and register a trade mark.

Such a search will give you the confidence to launch your product or enter into a commerical discussion with a potential distributor or licensee fully aware of the extent of risks presented in adopting the mark for use.  It will also assist in identifying whether there are any potential obstacles to registration of the mark which have the potential to unsettle commerical arrangements or result in unnecessary cost arising from adopting mark which may present registration problems.

When reporting searches, Davies Collison Cave’s attorneys provide a comprehensive report on risks and how best to manage them.  We strive to make our advice commercially relevant and to take the time to explain to our clients the implications of any risks.
