Trademarks Searches


We do not carry out clearance searches on trademarks in IP databases, we assist our clients only when the request requires documentary research.


We carry out various documentary research in the field of trademarks.


  • Prior art research for a three-dimensional trademark or a logo
  • Evidence/investigations of trademark use
  • Trademark awareness report
  • Evidence of distinctive – or non-distinctive – character of a three-dimensional trademark, a color trademark
  • Evidence of the generic nature of a word trademark

Our methodology

Research can be carried out in our archives, on the Internet,
in museums and external databases of different countries… We adapt our search strategy to the trademark in question and the area or region concerned; our archivists carry out tailor-made searches.

Our reports are carefully illustrated, the results are filed by business sector and/or by country.

They are great working tools for IP professionals.


Our archives are oriented “manufactured products” (bags, shoes, jewelry, furniture, decoration, toys, cosmetics, patterns …), however we are solicited by companies from many different business sectors, and can launch searches in other fields: architecture, food, media, energy


Text searches

Thanks to carefully indexed digital books and our ICR (Intelligent Character Recognition) system, we are able to carry out text searches in these publications, which is particularly useful when it comes to trademark searches.

Other tools

We also carry out trademark searches in external databases, as we have access to numerous magazines and digitized works from different countries.

In addition, our many books on logotypes and typography enable us to carry out prior art searches on logos in the context of litigation or as a preventive measure.
