Toronto Trademark Lawyers

A trademark is something that allows a business to differentiate itself from other businesses and provides that business with a distinctive “identity”. A trademark can consist of words, sounds, or designs. A trademark can be an important element in a successful business and a valuable piece of intellectual property since, over time, it can come to represent not only the goods or services a company provides, but also reflect that company’s reputation.

If you are interested in registering a trademark for your business name, business logo, or business tagline/slogan, contact the Toronto trademark lawyers at Baker & Company. Our multidisciplinary practice is run by a team of lawyers and law clerks who share complementary skills and leverage one another’s knowledge, experience, and expertise.

Benefits of Trademark Registration 

A business does not necessarily have to register its trademark. In Canada, trademark rights can be acquired for both registered and unregistered trademarks, and a trademark does not need to be registered in order for it to be protected. However, while there is no obligation to register, the registration of a trademark provides significant benefits for that trademark’s owner.

Some benefits of trademark registration include:

  • Protection of the trademark across Canada for 15 years;
  • Exclusive use of the trademark in Canada;
  • An improved ability to enforce your trademark rights in Canada, including the ability to sue for infringement, and increase difficulty for others to challenge your trademark;
  • An enhanced ability to license your trademark rights to others in Canada, including franchises; and
  • A potential increase in value of your company for prospective investors.
