Trade Mark Search

Trade mark conflicts can be costly! Before you invest time and money in applying for a trade-mark, make sure your trade mark can be registered.

TRADEMARKZONE can advise you on your trade mark before you file your application and provide information on issues commonly encountered. A trade mark search can save you time and money by avoiding common pitfalls.

With our trade mark search, you will receive a detailed report within 5-7 business days of possible issues along with an explanation of your options.

We Recommend

TRADEMARKZONE recommends that before you make a trade mark application you apply for a search. This will give you an indication of whether anyone else has applied for or is using a similar mark to your own in New Zealand or whether there are any reasons that IPONZ may refuse your trade mark.
