For many years, ZELLER & SEYFERT has been working with personnel based in Switzerland, allowing us to swiftly apply for and register trademarks in Switzerland for our clients.
Through this, we have registered several dozen Swiss trademarks for our clients at the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property (IGE) every year. The trademark applications at the IGE are carried out by us online to ensure rapid registration.
Swiss trademarks extend territorial protection
Since Switzerland is not part of the European Union (EU), EU trademarks do not also protect the trademark owner in the territory. In order to extend trademark protection to include Switzerland, it is therefore additionally necessary to file a trademark application in the country.
Our Guarantee: We file your application within 24 hours
We will register your Swiss trademark with the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property (IGE) within 24 hours after we have received the trademark application fees.
We want to avoid delays in the filing of your Swiss trademarks by all means necessary. We therefore expressly guarantee that we will always file the Swiss trademark application within 24 hours after receipt of the application fees on our account at the IGE. The trademark application will be personally filed by an attorney online with the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property (IGE). This guarantees an error-free and speedy application process according to the standards of the IGE.
Trademark certificates for registered trademarks
After registration of the Swiss trademark, the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property (IPI) sends the trademark certificate by mail-in paper form. If you wish, we will then send you the trademark certificate by mail or by DHL Express. We will also be happy to store the trademark certificate for you in our secure archives at our office. If there is a dispute about your registered trademark at a later date, the trademark certificate will provide full proof before the competent Swiss court that you are the owner of the registered Swiss trademark.
