Advising our clients on different opportunities and challenges of the industry.
Deacons has been providing trade mark advice for over 140 years and we offer a first class service when it comes to protecting trade marks across the world.
Trade marks are frequently among a company’s most valuable assets so protecting them is of top priority for many businesses. We act for the owner of and still maintains the oldest trade mark in Hong Kong registered in 1874 and we have advised local and international clients (including almost all of the world’s leading brands according to Interbrand) across a wide range of sectors on developing and pursuing successful trade mark strategies, as well as assisting in trade mark disputes in Hong Kong and Mainland China.
Our experienced trade mark lawyers can assist with everything from trade mark clearance searches, filing strategy and trade mark prosecution, to conducting trade mark audits, advising on and managing complex portfolios, to opposition, invalidation, revocation or cancellation proceedings. We also provide a full range of services in relation to the commercial exploitation of trade marks. We take our client’s valuable trade marks seriously and believe that managing a portfolio is not just about registering trade marks but to regularly take proactive and strategic review of the client’s business, to work together with the client to anticipate potential business and problems for our clients before they occur.
Clients particularly value our international service, which covers trade mark registrations throughout the Asia-Pacific region and further afield, while our breadth of experience and innovative approach sees us consistently ranked as a leading and top tier practice in all major independent guides such as Managing Intellectual Property’s annual survey, Chambers Global, Chambers Asia-Pacific and Legal 500 Asia Pacific.
