Hiring a Lawyer to Apply for a Trademark in Israel
According to the Trademarks Ordinance in Israel, anyone may apply for a trademark (logo, brand, slogan, etc.) without the assistance of a lawyer. There are certain cases where one must sign an affidavit, in which case one would need a lawyer. (See, for example, our article entitled “Expediting Trademark Registration in Israel,” which discusses the need for an affidavit to justify applying for the expedited procedure.)
In the event that an applicant wishes to apply for a trademark in Israel but does not live in Israel, they must provide an address in Israel where notices can be delivered. A lawyer can also assist with this if the applicant needs this service.
If you wish to apply for a trademark on your own, see the resources we provide in our articles on trademarks. If you wish to simplify the process and ensure that the paperwork is filed correctly, or if you need a lawyer for other services in the trademark registration process, we would be happy to assist you.
