When we talk about a “Trademark Assignment” in general, we refer to the change of ownership of a trademark. This implies that whoever has all the exploitation rights over a certain trademark, assigns it to a third party.

For instance, some legislations require a written document between the parties for the assignment to be completed. If you need advise with the drafting of the contract, do not hesitate to contact us. Furthermore, in some cases, signatures will need to be certified and legalized.
Additionally, in some countries, it will be necessary to register the assignment document before the Trademarks Office, for the assignment to be considered know by third parties.
