Having a trademark for the brand enables clients to distinguish your products and services from the competitors. A trademark can be defined as a name, symbol, word, artwork or logo which is used by a business organization to create an identity of their own. Trademark registration in Qatar is used to protect companies in the country and is valid for 10 years from the date of registration. The entire process takes around twelve to sixteen months. It is important to note that any property rights registered with a trademark certificate will not be provided with any protection outside Qatar.
