Renew your trademark with our network law firm’s experienced attorneys
Registered Trademarks usually last for 10 years; maintaining your trademark rights through efficient renewals management is of fundamental importance.
If no request has been filed in time, late renewal is still possible within an additional period of six months. The late request for renewal must be submitted and the renewal fee plus a 25% surcharge paid within this grace period, which starts on the day following the last day of the month in which the trade mark was due for renewal.
Conversion or renewal?
If you choose not to renew your EU trade mark but would like to maintain your rights in certain Member States, you can file an application for conversion. This request must be filed within three months from the end of the additional period for renewal.
Partial renewal of an EU trade mark
You can renew the EUTM in its entirety or just partially (by removing some classes).
If an EU trade mark is not renewed
If an EU trade mark is not renewed it will be marked as having expired approximately two weeks after the end of the additional period.
