There are two ways an Australian trade mark owner can seek trade mark protection in the UK:
If you file an application through the Madrid Protocol, and you wish to nominate other European countries, you can file a European Union application which will include the UK.
If the UK is the only European country you wish to file in, you can nominate UK only instead of having coverage in all of the 28 member countries of the European Union.
If you’re thinking about extending your trade mark protection to the UK, please get in touch and we can talk through the options available to you.
