Founded in 2011, and located in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, Drake Marks is a Canadian Intellectual Property firm specializing exclusively in the registration of trademarks and the provision of trademark agency-related services.
We advise clients on all aspects of trademark prosecution, including advising clients on the registrability and availability of trademarks, the prosecution of applications, opposition and expungement proceedings and rights transfer. In our practice we enforce clients' trademark rights in Canada and abroad. We regularly represent foreign IP firms to obtain protection of their clients' trademarks in Canada.
We understand the value and importance of trademark registration and for many years we have helped our clients to obtain and maintain their trademarks in a variety of different ways, including, ensuring a proposed trademark is available for use and registration, preparing and filing trademark applications for registration, preparing arguments to substantive Examiner's Reports and formalities issues, trademark registration renewals, opposition and trademark cancellation proceedings. We also provide trademark registrations in other countries through our extensive network of foreign associates.
