Trademark registration is an important step during the company incorporation procedure. A trademark allows the company to identify itself on the market and protect a logo that identifies it against infringement and use from another company. A trademark can take various forms and companies in Dubai are advised to seek assistance for registering a trademark in Dubai.
Our Dubai lawyers can help you with intellectual property protection and trademark registration. We can help you make sure that your chosen trademark does not copy an existing one or is in no way in conflict with another trademark.
The importance of trademark protection
Trademark protection is important for the owner of a company. By registering the trademark, the company obtains exclusive rights for its usage and can take legal actions if another company attempts to use it. Trademarks are considered intangible assets and can increase the value of acompany in Dubai.
A trademark can contain works, names, phrases, a logo or design, a symbol, image or a combination of these elements. Color patterns and combinations can also be registered.

Trademark registration in Dubai
A trademark that is registered in Dubai is also registered in all the seven emirates. The licence is valid for a period of 10 years and it can be renewed afterwards for the same amount of time. Our attorneys in Dubai will make sure that your chosen trademark can be used and we will also make sure that it is registered in the correct class.
The chosen trademark is published in the UAE Trademark Bulletin and, if there are no objections and the fees have been paid by the applicant, the registration commences. If the trademark is accepted, the applicant receives a trademark registration certificate. In the UAE, the registration of trademarks and patents is made at the Trademark Section of the Ministry of Economy and Commerce. The application should be filled by an individual with a registered address in the UAE, but our Dubai lawyers can help you submit the application by means of a power of attorney issued specifically for this purpose.
