Trading, planning on trading, or manufacturing in the UAE? Protect your mark now.
The UAE is already a notoriously expensive country in which to pursue protection and it has now been brought to our attention that the Government of the UAE plans to increase official fees associated with IP protection from 29 May 2015 onwards. For trade mark protection, this will mean a 100% increase.
If you have commercial interests in the UAE market (current or future), we would advise that you seek trade mark protection as soon as possible so as to avoid these increased fees.
We of course can organise protection on your behalf and so please contact us now if you have aninterest in pursuing this.
