Trademarks and Patents
Associated with Industrial Property and with a greater global transcendence at a business level are Trademarks and Patents.
Trademarks are distinctive signs that allow companies to differentiate their products and services from other competitors in the market. Trademarks are associated with a series of attributes that can represent a high added value. It is therefore essential that they be given adequate protection.
For this purpose, the law offers as a protection mechanism: trademark registrations. The registration of a trademark grants, on the one hand, exclusive ownership of its use and, on the other hand, the possibility of excluding third parties from using it.
There are certain types of registrations depending on the scope of protection to be obtained: National Trademark Registration, European Trademark Registration or International Trademark Registration.
Patents, on the other hand, allow inventions to be converted into profits. A patent is obtained by registering it, which grants exclusive ownership and the right to exploit it.
There are different types of patents: National Patent, European Patent, and International Patent.
At Navas & Cusí we consider the protection of trademarks and patents to be a fundamental factor and a means of investment, by means of which we can avoid, reduce and anticipate future problems of improper and inappropriate use by third parties. We, therefore, offer comprehensive advice on all types of registrations and legal defense adapted to each case.
