WARNING

We are aware of companies approaching applicants directly following the filing and publication of trade mark applications (United Kingdom and European Union trade marks). These companies offer entries in unofficial registers which are worthless. We know from personal experience that they include invoices which look authentic and as if they are from an official body. They are not. If in any doubt, please give us a call.
