Trade Marks

A Trade Mark is any sign capable of being represented graphically which is capable of distinguishing the goods or services of one company from the goods and services of their competitors.

Trade Marks are generally words, symbols, designs, names, colours, shapes or logos or any combination thereof.  Trade Marks serve as a badge of origin.  A Trade Mark can be one of the main assets of a company when marketed properly.

Brian Moloney, Principal of Moloney & Associates, is a registered Community Trade Mark Attorney as well as a solicitor and can file Irish, European Community and International Trade Mark filings on behalf of clients from our offices here in Limerick City.

We advise our clients on pre-filing issues such as carrying out searches on existing trade marks and also advise our clients when their Trade Mark rights are being infringed and advise on the licensing and transfer of Trade Mark rights.

It is advisable to use the ® symbol where you have registered a trade make to alert competitors that you have protected your brand although there is no obligation to do so.
