Once the trademark characteristics and the intended products and services are determined, it is advisable to conduct an availability trademark search, from which it can be analyzed if the sign of interest would likely have any conflict with previous applied and/or registered signs on behalf of third parties.

Even though this procedure is not compelling, it is advisable to carry it out to determine the chances of success of registration, to estipulate potential obstacles for the same and to find potential legal solutions to overcome those.
