Are you looking to create your own brand identity and securing it? Trademark it!

The local Trademarks Act identifies that a “trademark may, in particular, consist of words (including personal names), figurative element, letters, numerals or the shape of good of their packaging”. This or a combination of these elements will help one to distinguish a specific business, goods or services.

A trademark application takes around 8 months from application date to be processed for vetting purposes. Keeping this lengthy process in mind, it is imperative to plan ahead and it is suggested to seek professional guidance throughout the application process to make sure that all requested information and paperwork is submitted successfully.

Once an application is approved, the proprietor will acquire exclusive property rights on the trademark.
