For transactional work that requires the issuance of a legal opinion, FocusCore has developed close relationships with a number of law firms throughout Asia-Pacific and, in some cases, has negotiated preferential rates with them that can be passed on to our clients. In addition, FocusCore can project manage external law firms on single or multi-jurisdictional matters to progress transactions expediently and on-budget.
All contracts and agreements supplied by FocusCore will be prepared by a qualified lawyer, will be commercially sound and will conform to the applicable laws. However, TGM Co., Ltd. a FocusCore Group company, is not a law firm, nor is it licensed to practice law.
Nothing on this site shall be considered legal advice and no attorney-client relationship is established.
Registration of Trademarks
Trademark registration in Myanmar is less developed that in much of the rest of Asia, however FocusCore has experts available to guide you through the registration processes for your business.
Trademark registration takes about one month to process in Myanmar. It is necessary to provide a specimen of your trademark with a detailed description of the related goods or services associated with the trademark. Required documentation includes a Power of Attorney and a Declaration of Ownership of Trademark, both of which must be notarized. The final stage will be to display a Cautionary Notice in a local English language newspaper which will detail the particulars of the trademark, such as the name of owner, and provides a warning against trademark infringement and counterfeiting.
The validity period of trademark registration is not prescribed by existing Myanmar laws, however we advise renewal every three years and FocusCore can assist with that.
