These searches, which are most common kind of searches, are called trade mark availability searches. It is essential to entrust the search to a local agent who can accurately advise on the implications of the search results and the necessary steps to be taken, so that the path to registration is obstacle free. Alternative trade mark search criteria are also available, such as searches by owner, class or even the list of goods and services.
