Ward Trade Marks


Company Profile

Highly skilled, highly experienced, tightly focused trade mark specialists – we are Ward Trade Marks.

Led by Rachael Ward (LLB (Hons), MCITMA), our company advises on trade marks and nothing else. This undiluted approach gives us unrivalled knowledge and expertise in this area, allowing you to have peace of mind that your trade mark intellectual property will be protected and defended.

Over twenty years working with clients such as Whitbread, LinkedIn, Starbucks, FB, nVidia, Mars Foods, and Kangol across European markets has given Ward Trade Marks invaluable experience – experience we will use to secure your trade mark.

We are large enough to carry real weight, but small enough that we haven’t lost that personal touch. We’re nimble, flexible and specialise in coming up with bespoke solutions for our clients rather than an off-the-shelf answer. From the very first point of contact we apply the highest of standards to everything we do. We go the extra mile to help our clients. 

“As a branding agency, we believe that it’s critical for businesses to make sensible decisions about protecting their trade marks. We recommend using Ward Trade Marks to our clients, as they fully comprehend the minutiae of the whole process and get it done in a fuss free, cost effective way, but most importantly, they make sure your brand assets are fully protected, which can alleviate a lot of potential heartache later on” - Clout Branding
