Anne Ryan & Co. prepare and file Irish, European Union and International trade mark applications and prosecute them through to registration.

IRISH TRADE MARK APPLICATIONS:
Multi-class applications can be filed in Ireland. To file a trade mark application we require the following information:

The full name and address of the applicant.
A legal description of the applicant e.g. an Irish company
A representation of the mark
The specification of goods and/or services
If the mark is a figurative mark, whether colour is to be claimed. If colour is to be claimed, it is preferable to indicate the colours relative to a recognized colour system such as pantone ®

Irish trade mark registrations are renewable at 10 year intervals under the Irish Trade Marks Act 1996. 

ASSIGNMENTS, CHANGES OF NAME, LICENCES, MERGERS & OTHER TRANSACTIONS:

ASSIGNMENT:
For recordal of an assignment we require a copy of the Deed of Assignment or other instrument of transfer signed by all parties thereto. We can attend to the certification of the document when taking the action to record the assignment. No notarization or other legalization is required.

If the assignment took place prior to April 1, 2004, the issue of stamp duty arises and you should contact us in this regard, if you require further information.


CHANGE OF NAME:
For recordal of a change of name, we require a copy of an extract from a Commercial Register, Register of Companies or other authority evidencing the change.

MERGER:
For recordal of a merger we require a  copy of the Deed of Merger or other instrument evidencing the merger. We can attend to the certification of the document when taking the action to record the merger. No notarization or other legalization is required.

LICENCE:
For recordal of a licence we require a  copy of the Licence Agreement. We can attend to the certification of the document when taking the action to record the licence. No notarization or other legalization is required.

CHANGE OF ADDRESS:
No documentation evidencing the change of address is required.

CHANGE OF LEGAL STATUS:
For recordal of a change of legal status, we require a copy of an extract from a Commercial Register, Register of Companies or other authority evidencing the change.

Please contact us should you require information relating to any of the above before the EUIPO, an International Registration or any country not covered by a European Union Trade Mark Application or an International Registration.

LANGUAGES:
The language used by the Irish Patents Office is English. Please note in the case where a document in a language other than English is to be filed at the Irish Patents Office an English translation is required. The Office retains the right to call for verification of the translation. In such cases, all that is required is a simple translator's certificate, and no notarisation or other legalisation is required.

EUROPEAN UNION TRADE MARK APPLICATIONS:
A European Union trade mark registration currently covers the 28 Member States of the European Union.

The filing requirements are as follows:

The full name and address of the applicant.
A legal description of the applicant e.g. an Irish company
A representation of the mark
The specification of goods and/or services
If the mark is a figurative mark, whether colour is to be claimed.


INTERNATIONAL TRADE MARK APPLICATIONS:
The Madrid system for International trade mark registrations offers a trade mark owner the possibility of having his trade mark protected in several countries, which are members of the Madrid Union, by simply filing one application directly with his own national or regional trade mark office. An international mark so registered is equivalent to an application or a registration of the same mark effected directly in each of the countries designated by the applicant. If the trade mark office of a designated country does not refuse protection within a specified period, the protection of the mark is the same as if it had been registered by that Office.

The Madrid system also simplifies greatly the subsequent management of the mark, since it is possible to record subsequent changes or to renew the registration through a single procedural step. Further countries may be designated subsequently.
