Intellectual Property Lawyers

Experienced trade mark lawyers providing trade mark registration, protection and enforcement legal services

We understand that your trade marks are important. Trade marks help distinguish your products and services from those of your competitors. They represent your organisation and its reputation, and are among your most valuable assets.

Our trade mark lawyers can help you to register and protect your trade marks in the UK and internationally, with transparency on fees and competitive rates.

Fixed-fee trade mark registration service

At VWV we pride ourselves on providing an excellent service resulting in bespoke trade mark registrations that are fit for purpose and future-proof, unlike many cut-price trade mark protection service providers.

We provide a premium trade mark registration service and our prices reflect this. We are not the cheapest in the market. Therefore, if you are purely a price buyer, we may not be the firm for you.

We do not provide free advice in relation to trade mark law. Trade mark law is a specialist area and we provide tailored advice specific to the circumstances of each matter. If you want advice on any aspect of trade marks law, we will happily agree a fee with you for providing that advice.

For more information, please contact Doug Locke on 0117 314 5602.
