Spruson & Ferguson has extensive experience in the protection of trade marks throughout the South Pacific countries including Kiribati, Tonga, Fiji, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.
We have strong relationships with the local Registries in these island countries and newspapers for the publication of cautionary notices in those smaller islands with no IP legislation. These relationships enable us to ensure the efficient protection of trade marks where otherwise lengthy delays can be encountered.
In the larger islands where the legislation provides for it, we are also familiar with oppositions and enforcement of our clients’ rights.
