Trademarks and what they will do for you
A trademark protects what makes your business unique and stops anyone but you benefiting from the hard work that has gone into making your ideas a reality. You can trademark anything that identifies you and your products to customers – from your name to your logo, or both, turning it into an asset that grows in value as your business does.
You choose to register your trademark under certain “classes” and these mark out the area your goods or services relate to. Once registered you have the legal standing to prevent anyone else using what you have protected in the areas you have applied in. Such as class 27 which would protect your trademark for the sale of carpets, rugs, mats and matting; amongst other floor covering goods. Bingo, no one else can use your fancy logo to sell their carpets. Carpet business is booming but you’ve always wanted to sell musical instruments on the side so we make sure to add class 15 to your registration. Then you branch out and sell some musical instruments your customers play whilst standing on their nice carpeted floors.
Beyond this you can license out or sell your registered trademark as it becomes property you can benefit from and manage as an asset.
The Trademark Brothers Service
No hidden costs or extras tucked away. The IPO charges £170 for a trademark application under one class of goods or services and £50 for each additional class. If you want to register more than one trademark or think you need something a bit different just get in touch and we can give you a clear quote upfront.
So we’ll tell you what you need to know about the process up front, particularly the two big ones of how long it’ll take and how much it’ll cost, and then submit it for you. Then keep you updated on your application as it progresses.
David ToscanoFounder / Cin Cin
Trademark Brothers are professional, adept and knowledgeable. Mo and Dom understand what a trademark means for a business and how to protect it. The trademark they secured for my business Cin Cin will grow in value as my business does. And I can now use my trademark with confidence knowing that it has been properly registered and certified.
Sam McMeekinFounder / Gipsy Hill Brewing Company
Trademark Brothers provided us a quick, simple and affordable route to trademarking our logos and brands. I rest easier at night now. It is a job I would have otherwise never got round to doing.
Maximilian BultmannCFO / Søda Drinks
Trademark Brothers provided consultancy work and assistance with our EU trademark application. They more than matched the level of expertise and professionalism of the law firms we had previously worked with whilst being far more competitively priced. Their deep understanding of my business helped me settle upon a new strategy moving forward and I would happily recommend them to anyone else.
Matt HumphreyFounder / Curtain Call
We weren’t aware how important a trademark could be in setting up a company until we spoke to Mo & Dom. There is a minefield of information out there, and the Trademark Brothers were able to help us pinpoint exactly what was essential for our business. They clearly highlighted the main points, and guided us through the decision making process, as well as dealing with the actual application itself, which was so useful. If you’re a business owner and haven’t considered trademarks, I would highly recommend chatting to the Trademark Brothers.
George LengyelFounder / Hubbub
Mo's service was confident, professional and timely. He was happy to sit down with us and talk through the whole process patiently and confidently and by the end of a short 30 minute consultation, we had everything sorted. I would highly recommend and definitely use his services again.
Armin GhojehvandFounder / Vitamin Buddy
Having spoken to a number of solicitors and still leaving not knowing why I needed a trademark, Trademark Brothers were a refreshing alternative in providing a jargon-free, fixed fee service when registering my trademark. Thank you Mo and Dom!
Gouri KubairManaging Director / Holy Lama Naturals
The Trademark Brothers were recommended to us by another food business and we were pleasantly surprised at the excellent service we received from Dom and Mo. They were quick in responding to all our queries and also gave us sound advice regarding the dos and don’ts, presented us with various options on saving money whilst making a strong trade mark application. It was really encouraging for a small business like ours to work with advisors who charged reasonable fees. So, for any trademark needs we would highly recommend Mo and Dom.
Emma Howells-DaviesCEO / Performance Circle
I would be happy to recommend the Trademark Brothers. They took the pain out of Trademarking my business name and products and have always provided me with an efficient and professional service. Thanks very much, Emma Howells-Davies, Performance Circle.
RobynFounder / Square Root Soda Works
Working with Mo & Dom has been a pleasure, as we have felt supported and reassured by their professionalism and evident experience. They are approachable, knowledgeable, and well worth every penny for the peace of mind they offer. Excellent to communicate with, diligent and direct, we would not hesitate to recommend the Trademark Brothers to anyone in need of such services.
Colin WhiteFounder / Vanav
At vanav we knew that getting protection for our Brand is important, but the registration landscape is large and confusing. TMB helped us cut to the chase, figure out what we needed to do and they made it happen. The process was quick, simple and clear. The expertise the TMB team brings was invaluable to us, as we would not have selected the correct categories at the outset. They saved us money in the long run. The feedback they were able to give about the naming and logo details was very helpful too. Overall they were diligent, dealt with all our questions, and completed the process in double quick time. Highly recommended. Thanks again.
Stephen HeathCompany Director / Clarity in Communication
I had previously attempted to register my trade marks by myself thinking it would save money and that the process seemed straightforward. Found this not to be the case and other pressing matters took priority. Went with Trademark Brothers who, at a reasonable price, took away the hassle and administration involved. Happy to say my marks are now registered and I was regularly updated throughout the process, personally and via their app.
Gail SmithFounder / The Wellness Workspace
I was extremely pleased with the whole process and service you provided. The one thing that stood out from my previous experience was your prompt replies and action, positive attitude to the process, plus your concise and clear instructions/ information.
Jane RodgersFounder / Before I Go Solutions
Using Trademark Brothers for my trademark application was a decision I am so glad I made. They were professional yet friendly, prompt in their replies to my email queries, and full of useful information about what categories I needed to use. This just wouldn't have got done if I hadn't used them, so I was delighted when Mo emailed to say the application had been successful. I would highly recommend them for a job well done at a reasonable price, and in a manner that made the whole process easy, simple and effortless for me.
Gillian KenwardFounder / Merak Star Consulting
It was a pleasure working with Dom from Trade Mark Brothers. I expected the process to be complex and bureaucratic, however Dom made the whole process simple and clear and was friendly and very responsive to my questions. I am extremely pleased with the experience from start to finish and would highly recommend TM Brothers.
