Trademark Registration in Turkey

Protecting your intellectual property through trademark registration is crucial for safeguarding your brand’s identity and preventing unauthorized use. In Turkey, trademarks are governed by the Industrial Property Law No. 6769, which establishes the legal framework for trademark protection.

To register a trademark in Turkey, applicants must follow a rigorous procedure, beginning with conducting a comprehensive trademark search to ensure the proposed mark does not conflict with existing registered trademarks. Our trademark lawyers can assist you in conducting a thorough search and assessing the risks associated with potential conflicts.

Trademark Application Process

Once the trademark search is completed, the next step is to prepare and submit a trademark application to the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office (TPTO). The application should contain accurate and detailed information about the applicant, the trademark itself, and the goods or services the mark will be used to distinguish.

The TPTO will review the application for compliance with legal requirements and assess its eligibility for registration. The examination process includes evaluating distinctiveness, descriptiveness, and potential conflicts with prior trademarks. Our experienced trademark lawyers can help streamline the application process and handle any potential challenges that may arise during the examination.

Trademark Renewal Process

Trademark registration in Turkey is valid for ten years from the date of filing. To maintain trademark protection beyond the initial ten-year term, trademark owners must file for trademark renewal before the expiration date. Failure to renew on time could result in losing valuable trademark rights.

Our dedicated trademark attorneys can keep track of renewal deadlines and proactively initiate the renewal process on your behalf, ensuring the continuous protection of your brand.

Trademark Assignment in Turkey

Assigning a trademark involves transferring ownership rights from one party to another. The process requires meticulous legal documentation to be executed in accordance with Turkish law.

Whether you are assigning or acquiring a trademark in Turkey, our skilled trademark lawyers can guide you through the assignment process, conduct due diligence, and assist in preparing and reviewing assignment agreements to protect your interests fully.

Trademark Search and Refusal

A thorough trademark search is essential before filing a trademark application to assess the likelihood of potential conflicts with existing trademarks. If the TPTO identifies any issues during the examination, the application may face refusal.

In cases of refusal, our experienced trademark attorneys can review the grounds for rejection and provide strategic advice on how to overcome obstacles, including appeal options if necessary.
