Your brand is your identity; it’s how your customers know who you are. This could be your business name, logo or a catchy slogan. The more successful your business, the more valuable your brand becomes, so it’s worth protecting.
A registered business name won’t stop your competitors from copying your brand, only a trade mark gives you the legal right to stop others from using it. Protecting your brand can be one of the best investments your business can make, but is it the right decision for your business?
