Registering brand, product and company names requires registration for unique use in the countries in which you operate. A trademark registration office examines the feasibility in advance and applies for registration within 1 or more of the 45 classes. In the Netherlands, registration coincides with Belgium and Luxembourg (Biop - Benelux). A bundle request is possible for the countries in the European Union (not the UK). If you encounter objections in one of the countries, there is a good chance that registration will then have to be applied for in another country in the EU.

For more information you can call us on +31(0)20 8200983 or the trademark registration office we work with Rise. If you would like a unique brand name that does stand a good chance of a successful registration, please contact our creative team using the form below or send an email to Read more about our brand name expertise here.
