here, there and everywhere
Having a thirst for geography makes us perfectly suited at registering trade marks around the world. We have a network of local
agents in countries such as Bhutan, Fiji and Turkmenistan and in countries hardly recognised diplomatically. We also have contacts
for those countries without trade mark legislation where it can be desirable to publish Cautionary Notices.
You don't have an agent somewhere? Then rely on the ATLAS-SMART service to assist you as a one-off or on a more regular basis.
A specialist IP database and other on-line and off-line
resources support a quirky experience of the idiosyncrasies of trade mark practice around the world.
We do file directly in a handful of jurisdictions where we consider it safe to do so as the IP systems are mostly well developed. This also includes some island jurisdictions with no local associates known to us.
Generally speaking, we prefer that local agents handle the work and our reasons are twofold. Firstly, having someone on the ground
helps solve any queries on the spot and they can help quicken registration times. Filing direct can otherwise be a false economy.
Secondly, this gives increased exposure of IP to local people which should help improve the understanding and importance of IP and
drive improvements in legislation. In the long term, we believe this can only bring benefits to IP rights owners and, in matching with our
ethical beliefs, can also go towards improving the economic conditions of the countries concerned.
