How long does it take to obtain the registration of a trademark?
APPLICATION NOW, THE NECESSARY ANALYSIS AFTERWARDS
Regardless of when registration is obtained, it is important to note that trademark protection begins from the date of filing the application and it becomes effective with registration.
The timeframe for obtaining a trademark registration depends on various factors, which makes it impossible to predict with certainty how long it will take. However, as an indication, it can be said that registering a European Union trademark can take 4 to 5 months through the Fast Track regime and in the absence of impediments.
As for registering an Italian trademark, the timeframe is generally longer, but less than one year.
For international trademarks, it is not possible to make predictions about registration timeframes because they vary widely depending on the designated offices.
