Services

Print this page
Searching and monitoring of intellectual property rights worldwide has been our core business since the year 1949. As we have been operating in this area for many years, we have gathered a wealth of know-how. Our employees are experts in trademarks, company names, industrial designs, patents and utility models, domain names, titles and slogans. Through a wide network of reliable, independent local experts in intellectual property law, SMD Benelux is able to further provide trademark searches with legal assessment.

For our services we rely on the latest official data from local patent and trademark offices. Part of the data is specially prepared, for example encoded or classified, by us in order to increase the quality of the results. The search algorithms which we use have been tested over many years and are continuously being optimized. After an initial computer search, the results are further processed by our specially trained and experienced staff. The search hits undergo multiple selection stages. In this way we can ensure an outstanding quality of our results.

Over time, our service portfolio has grown organically. Today we offer further supplementary or related services, such as the updating and maintenance of trademark data as well as the administration of your trademarks. With regard to all of our services we place great importance on a comprehensive and competent personal support.

Trademarks

In case your search covers countries of the European Community or the Madrid System, we will always search for Community Trademarks and International Registrations valid in the respective legislation without additional costs.

Designs

Certainly the amount of designs found could be strongly reduced through additional use of device mark classifications. On the other hand this bears the risk of missing out relevant designs. For quality reasons we completely rely on Locarno classes.
