Trademarks are signs capable of distinguishing the goods or services of one enterprise from those of other enterprises. Trademarks are protected by intellectual property rights. We are specialist in filing, protecting and managing Trademarks in Tunisia.
Registering a trade mark gives the owner the exclusive right to use the mark in relation to specified goods or services. A trade mark can be a very valuable asset to a business. Trademarks are an essential part of doing business. Businesses can use trade marks in the development of their own unique ‘brand image’, allowing consumers to identify the source of the products and services of interest to them.
Maintaining and enforcing international Trademarks requires a coordinated strategy that covers many different laws and legal systems. It requires a unique blend of prosecution and counselling skills, together with experience in enforcing and defending rights through litigation.

The imitation of creative products, labels, and trade dress is a constant phenomenon in all markets. The activity of infringers is not limited to the imitation of luxury goods but extends to all kinds of consumer goods, including cosmetics, fashion, furniture, and high-tech products such as MP3 players, cell phones, and cars.
To defend products effectively, businesses need to take a strategic approach in selecting the right jurisdictions in which to register designs. At the same time, swift action is required to act against the manufacturers and distributors of unlawful look-alikes and counterfeit products.
Achour Law Firm is experienced in advising design owners on global portfolio management, handling registrations in sectors ranging from cosmetics, clothes, and footwear to toys, automotive, and electronics.
Our enforcement practice is particularly strong. We are ideally placed to assist with anti-counterfeiting strategies in source, transit, and destination countries, working effectively with customs authorities.
