Transfers and name changes

It is of upmost importance that the owner and ownership information in patent, trademark and design registers is always kept up-to-date. This way also the competitors are aware of the current situation. In case of changes to owner’s name or ownership, the authorities maintaining the registers do not update this kind of information without a specific request – thus the owner is responsible for forwarding the new information to the authorities. Especially in connection with company acquisitions or mergers, the registers should always be updated relatively quickly, since obtaining the required documents and information can be difficult after a long period of time.

We will take necessary steps regarding the changes coming to our knowledge. The client will always be contacted before proceeding with the matter, since register updates may require thorough studies of the documents and often incur official fees. Regarding register updates abroad, the documents need often be translated and local experts be consulted.
