Before you register or use your trademark or company name, you must check that it is in fact available. After all, you don’t want to infringe any pre-existing trademarks. So be off to a good start, and always start by checking the availability of your trademark. That way, you can avoid any claims for damages.

Knijff is the leading specialist in checking trademark availability. We perform trademark searches to reveal anything that stands in the way of registering your new trademark. Based on the outcome of the search, we send you a clear advice so that you will know exactly what to do and which steps to take to prevent infringing other trademarks.

The most important step is a search of the trademark register. Additional checks of the commercial registers of Chambers of Commerce can also be useful.
