Trademark discovery search / Quick check

Are you looking for a new trademark for your product or your service? Do you have a whole list of suggestions and ideas for new names? Would you really like to know what names to consider for trademark registration but do not have the budget to do a thorough and extensive similarity search on every single one?

In order to obtain an initial overview of trademark discovery, a market discovery search/quick search is suitable. A cursory amount of research is done with this. This is currently only possible in the registers for Germany, Switzerland, Austria, WIPO, and the EU trademark register. The results for the desired names are then broadly categorized. Often one can tell already at this point which names have a chance for successful registration and which do not. 

Following this, we recommend performing a more thorough similarity search in order to obtain a comprehensive overview for one of the remaining favorites.
