Trademark searching and clearance is the first step you need to take before you consider a trademark registration. A professionally performed, accurate search and clearance will ensure that your proposed trademark wont face any obstacles on the way to registration.

Expertise is absolutely necessary in conducting a trademark search. You need extensive intellectual property experience to be able to find similar (or in some cases, the same) trademarks. You even need to know, and understand, how to search through unregistered trademarks, particularly given that rights can still be claimed for unregistered trademarks in some instances.

Cooper Mills has the expertise and practical experience in trademark search and clearance to be able to assist every step of the way. We won’t rest until we’re 100% sure that your trademark registration process will run smoothly.

Our Trademark Searching and Clearance Services

We offer a whole range of trademark searches and can generate numerous reports, all of which are designed to help you understand prior trademark claims, and how these claims could affect your registration. We can even put together reports that detail pending claims for trademarks within your market, which will help in developing a trademark protection strategy. Depending on your needs, we’ll tailor our range of services just for you, including:

  • Preliminary trademark searches to determine if there are any identical trademarks in the Australian Trademark Register.
  • Searches into the same and similar trademarks. As a result of this search, we can then generate a report that identifies any difficulties you may face in registering your trademark.
  • An even more in-depth search into registered and unregistered identical marks. This search should reveal any obstacles you’re likely to face in registering your trademark as it takes into account unregistered and registered marks.
  • In-depth international trademark searches for most overseas localities.
