The information of trademark registration procedure, cost and professional service is vital for the registration of trademarks. WIPS offers trademark registration service in Nepal for the national and international clients on very affordable cost with fully professional service. 

Trademarks protect signs capable of being represented graphically, particularly words, including personal names, designs, letters, numerals, the shape of goods or of their packaging, three-dimensional forms, colors, as well as the combinations of all the above indicated signs, provided that such signs are capable of distinguishing the goods or services of one undertaking from goods or services of other undertakings.
