Trademarks

We are Stibbe Trademarks specialists

We have many years of experience in Benelux and Community trademark law which enables us to achieve optimal results for clients.

Trademarks

Trademarks rights are the only intellectual property rights for which unlimited protection can be accorded for the long-term. With their vital importance to a business, we have been entrusted with the management of many trademark portfolios.

We advise and represent clients at all stages of judicial proceedings and in all domains of trademark and trade name protection. This includes advising on a new trademark name, assistance in disputes with third parties (such as opposition and infringement procedures), and trade name litigation.

In addition, we have special experience in the complex area of exhaustion of community trademark rights, parallel imports of branded products in a European context, and in domain name disputes.

Our lawyers have also accumulated extensive experience and expertise on the contractual aspects of trademark law comprising trademark licence issues and transfer contracts, transactional agreements or transfers of trademarks, and coexistence agreements.

Finally, we assist in due diligence activities in the framework of our capital markets and M&A practice.
