I undertake the registration and monitoring of individual or collective marks or trade marks on a national, European or global level in accordance with the Madrid Agreement and I also offer support should such marks be contested during their registration.I am capable of effectively defending, in court or before the competent committees and administrative bodies, any infringement or contestation of your trade mark, registered name, distinctive signs and domain names of your business. This includes cases of infringements after the registration, as well as cases of cyber squatting, both in court and before arbitration bodies for dispute resolution (WIPO – UDRP, Hellenic Telecommunications and Post Commission).
