New Zealand trade mark registration by Canopus

Protect your exclusive business brand by registered trade mark over your product name, company logo or service title.

Our unique three stage trade mark registration process aims at delivering your registered trade mark at very affordable cost or otherwise identifying difficultes before significant fees are incurred.

Key advantages of working with Canopus:

  • Canopus provides personal attention and advice to determine correct description of your trade mark to satisfy both your own and the Registrar's requirements
  • Not just a hit and miss online submission service leaving you to do all the work and then pay for the mistakes
  • Very cost effective for straightforward trademark registration.
  • Reduced cost for multiple filings.
  • Staged process identifies likely problems before high fees incurred.
