    Hi everyone, I have rebranded a company and they have asked about protecting their new logo.
    Can anyone advise on what I need to do and how much it will cost?

    Thanks, Simon.

    I have done this previously for my own logo and clients.

    You need to know whether this will be TM for UK/Europe or rest of the World.

    If it's a TM for UK/Europe then you need to understand the class that the client sits in based on service provision (see Intellectual Property Office - How we classify goods and services for classification guide).

    Once you know your class you can then complete the IP form for registration: Intellectual Property Office - On-line form TM3. Here is a list of associated fees based on cat type: Intellectual Property Office - Trade mark forms and fees

    There are many companies online that offer TM services; however, I think you will find that the site is the most reputable and reliable for TM registration.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks olly79 for a great response, very helpful. I will go through the process and post if I can add any information. Thanks, Simon.

    I was recently looking into this also and if I remember right, it's £200 to register the TM + £50 for each classification you add to it, then it's registered for 10 years. So I totally agree that the time spent on the IPO site doing it yourself is well worth it.
