Maintaining your trade mark registration is just as important as your initial registration. If you allow your trade mark to lapse, you may lose your rights in the trade mark.

The initial period of trade mark protection in Australia is 10 years from filing (not 10 years from registration). After the 10 year period, you must renew your application and pay fees in order to maintain your rights. Failure to do so may result in your registration lapsing and opens up your trade mark for use by another party.

Our trade marks attorneys can assist you with all aspects of trade mark renewals. We will alert you to upcoming renewal deadlines in ample time, ensuring you can budget effectively and never miss a deadline.
