What is a Registrability Search?

It is our practice to perform a search of the Canadian Trademark Office’s database in order to ascertain the availability of your mark. In addition, it may be prudent to search unregistered trademarks such as trade names, which may have common-law rights. The cost of the search is often far less than the cost associated with changing the mark later if it is determined that there is a prior user. After determining that the goods and/or services you intend to provide in association with the proposed mark, we will perform the search, analyze the results and report to you.
