In Nicaragua, retrospective searches of registration records can be carried out before the Intellectual Property Registry. Conducting a background check is a very good tool to estimate the feasibility of registering a trademark.
Before proceeding to submit a trademark application, conducting a background search is recommended, since the report shows the registrations or applications of trademarks that are similar to the trademark to be registered in Nicaragua. Depending on the result of the search report, the trademark attorney issues an opinion on the availability of the brand. In this way, the person interested in registering the brand avoids unnecessary expenses, and even losses, if the launch of a product or service under a brand that is not available, or whose process presents high risks, is prepared.
