A trademark distinguishes your brand from its competitors, and communicates the brand values that are specific to your product or service.
Gauteng trademark attorneys Smit & Van Wyk Incorporated can assist you to register your trademark, preventing from competitors taking advantage of its recognisability and perhaps even damaging your reputation in the process.
There is no point in protecting a trademark that is not unique, so Gauteng trademark attorneys Smit & Van Wyk Incorporated can also conduct searches through the records at the South African Trademarks Office.
This will provide an indication of whether there are existing trademarks which are identical or similar to yours.
Foreign trademark searches may also be conducted – please contact us, should you wish to have a search conducted through the trademark offices of foreign countries.
