Question: How To Trademark A Name?

If you want to know how to trademark a name you are in the right place.

Our site is dedicated to advising all kinds of businesses on how to trademark a name and, in fact, we have a team of lawyers you can contact right away for a free legal consulation who specialise in doing just that and who will be pleased to give you some free legal advice on how to trademark a name.

Although this is a complex area, the answer to the question “How to Trademark a Name’ is basically very simple: the only way you can protect a name legally is by way of trademark registration.

Most people think that the answer to how to trademark a name is to register it as a company name at Companies House. In fact, whilst there is a procedure to register a name at Companies House, this procedure gives no exclusive right to use the name in business.

Others think that the best way to trademark a name is domain name registration but, again, from a legal point of view, this does not give you the exclusive right to use the name as a trademark. It is not sufficient to register a name at Companies House or register a name as an internet domain or simply to place the “TM” symbol next to your name and hope for the best. If you trademark a name by way of trademark registration you get the exclusive right to use your business name for the goods and/or services for which it is registered in the UK, Europe or internationally, depending on how widely you decide to register the trademark.
