Trade marks, brands and reputation

In competitive commercial environments, your business name, logo and other brand assets can be key drivers of your success.

Registering trade marks is an important step to secure your brand and its reputation. It prevents others from using branding that exploits the reputation your company has built up.

Stephens Scown processes more trade mark applications than any other firm in the region [1] . In 2015 we were one of the top 50 UK trade mark filing organisations in Europe [2].
