Should I get a trade mark for my new business?

There are lots of things to think about when starting a new business, including whether or not to get a trade mark.

When starting your new business or brand, these are the costs of NOT getting a trade mark.

  • Being issued with a cease-and-desist letter for using a brand that is the same or similar to an earlier trade mark. Then potentially having to pay the other side’s lawyers for issuing the cease-and-desist letter to you and/or an account of profits.

  • Being forced to re-brand – this can include changing your products, packaging, merchandise, advertising materials or domain name.

  • Another business filing a similar trade mark to your brand.

To save on these costs, call Moustacas & Co Lawyers. We can first determine whether your brand is likely to be registered as a trade mark.

This means that your brand is considered to be unique and distinct from the goods and services you provide and that there are no other trade marks that will likely impede your brand’s progression from filing through to registration.

Making or updating your will

Making a will is an important step in ensuring your loved ones don’t get left in the dark, as it ensures your property goes to where and who you want it to.

A lawyer can ensure that your wishes are best communicated and make sure that your will is correctly drafted and signed.

If there are any changes you would like to make to your will, you must notify your lawyer as an invalid will may not go into probate. This can affect to who or where your property goes.
