Empower and protect your trademarks

SMD assists trademark owners and intellectual property attorneys worldwide in protecting trademarks. We provide information that serves as a sound basis for your decisions or for advising your clients - from naming, searching, and clearance to safeguarding your rights.

Trademark Searches

Before you file a trademark application, you should conduct a search. This is to determine whether your desired label is free for use and registration. Namely, if you infringe the prior rights of others, their owner may hold you liable. We help you in the decision-making process with reliable searches!

Trademark Watching

After registering your label, keeping track of newly published trademarks that may be confused with your own is vital. This allows you to take legal action if third parties infringe your rights with their applications or registrations. We continuously monitor the official registers in this respect for you.
