Surridge and Beecheno is the oldest firm of trademark practitioners in Pakistan. We have a dedicated department specializing in trademark and patent laws, which advises on patents, trademarks, copyrights, designs, know-how and other intellectual property matters, including those arising in the course of general and transactional work. Our team also advises on information and technology transfers and prepares and registers trademarks and patents in Pakistan and negotiates and drafts license agreements.

The Firm advised and represented Nike International, Inc. not only in filing fresh trademarks applications and renewals of existing marks but also in opposing certain deceptively similar trademarks applications filed by third parties. The attorneys of our department have acted as counsels for J. S. Staedler and Dr. Willmar Schwabe GmbH and Co and Pierre-Fabre before the courts of Pakistan.

Similar work was carried out by our team for Mitsubishi Corporation, Pierre-Fabre, AstraZeneca, Six Continents Hotel, Inc. (Holiday Inn), Nabisco Brand Inc., Galderma S.A, Dabur India Ltd, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc. (Sheraton Hotels Group), Singapore Airlines, Uster Technologies, and Habanos SA (Cuban Cigars). Amongst its other clients are Hallmark IP Limited (formerly, the Trademark Owners Association) and Walmart, Inc. etc.
