Led by Rachael Ward (LLM,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 Mars, Costa Coffee, Whitbread, LinkedIn, Starbucks, Facebook and nVidia 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. Our expertise lies 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.

She avoids jargon and simplifies every matter - enabling everyone to understand. She is thoroughly professional and has delivered a spectacular service to us over the last year. IP is a crucial part of our business and it's great to know Rachael is in our corner.” – Charlie Dalton, Managing Director at Zedbox and PDS Worldwide; Chairman at Smart Garden Offices.
