Patent & Trade Mark Agency Mihailovic

Established in 1937, Patent and Trade Mark Agency Mihailovic is a family run firm that has been providing consistently efficient and high-value services to its clients.

With headquarters in Belgrade (Serbia) and local offices in Albania, Bosnia and Hercegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, North Macedonia, Montenegro and Slovenia, we offer a simple ‘one point of contact for eight jurisdictions’ approach to our many clients.

We are passionately devoted to providing prompt and individual attention to our clients and their specific needs – from strategic IP consulting, trademark availability searches, new patent applications or validations, trademark and design filings, renewals and plant variety rights to litigation and various enforcement-related matters.

Additionally, we are often entrusted with large IP portfolio change projects – such as assignments and/or licence recordals, as well as name/address changes encompassing multiple jurisdictions and large numbers of registrations.

We very much enjoy fulfilling our client’s requests, and we especially shine when we get a chance to help out in disputes. This includes replies to provisional refusals, filing oppositions or replies to oppositions, preparing cease and desist letters and handling IP lawsuits – we are highly skilled in predicting outcomes and advising on the best course of action in any situation. Our record is outstanding.

We advise across all sectors, with experience covering the full spectrum of businesses and particularly deep expertise in the beverage and alcoholic drinks, pharmaceutical and hotel industries.

Our clients are foreign companies and law firms based mainly in Germany, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom, United States and Japan.

Our firm has built its reputation on family tradition, legal competence and efficiency, connecting three generations and over 80 years of continued accomplishments.

We keep our firm at a comfortable mid-size level with an informal, friendly office culture and little hierarchy.

Another strong area of the firm’s expertise is seizure matters, both at the borders and in the market place. We cooperate closely with local enforcement officers and maintain good relationships on behalf of our clients to make any seizure as simple and stress-free as possible.

We handle and advise interested companies on ways to approach the Balkans area in the best way for their size and budget, keeping in mind their objectives and recommending a long-term approach best suited to their goals.

Our advice is always free and our blog offers a lot of free information, too.

There and on our LinkedIn page, we regularly share news, answers to IP questions and IP knowledge to inform and guide our followers.

Our reputation is based on high levels of success and satisfaction rates among our clients, many of whom have been placing their trust in our firm for decades.

We are proud members of INTA, the European Communities Trademark Association, the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property, the Intellectual Property Owners Association and the International Federation of Intellectual Property Attorneys, as well as other international IP organisations. We strive to attend all major international conferences and invite you to meet with us the next chance we get.

In the meantime, find out more on our website or contact us by email to see how you could benefit from our devoted and efficient approach to IP protection in the Balkans.

At nearly 85 years old, our firm goes on, busy as ever!
