Our firm

Since the first member company was established in Germany in 1993, the Brandstock Group has grown to over 150 employees in six countries. From its strong European base, the group has also expanded into the United States and is now part of the Questel company.

The group has established itself as a market leader in large-scale IP projects, including:

  • global trademark search and clearance;
  • complex multi-territory filing programmes;
  • recordal programmes; and
  • renewals.

Other areas of expertise include:

  • full-service IP portfolio management;
  • litigation and other IP enforcement, including anti-counterfeiting programmes;
  • domain name registration and management;
  • valuation and asset value consultancy; and
  • IP benchmarking.

For over 20 years Brandstock has revolutionised pricing in the IP sector, introducing and developing unprecedented levels of transparency and control over costs. Much of this has been driven by investment in technology – particularly web-based platforms that we, external counsel firms and our clients can use daily to inform and interact.

Brandstock has led the way in the IP sector and will continue to do so by constantly improving its IP capabilities to drive performance and cost efficiencies for our clients.
