Trade marks

An organisation’s brands are one of its most valuable properties. They need a protective exclusion zone that only trade marks can provide.

HGF’s team of international trade mark attorneys comprises extensive sector specialists with the specific expertise required to protect and maximise your brands.

Our attorneys and lawyers have a wealth of experience throughout Europe. They provide commercial strategic advice and deliver a variety of online-specific services such as internet and domain-name monitoring and enforcement, whilst taking care of prosecution, oppositions, appeals and IP litigation, representing clients at the EU, UK, German and Benelux Trade Mark Registries.
