Express trademark protection Germany: Accelerated application or accelerated proceeding for a German trademark registration (e.g. for Amazon)

Many clients – especially Amazon sellers at the Amazon marketplace (AMZ) from around the world – require a fast German trademark protection (quick trademark in Germany) or generally look for the quickest option to get a trademark registration in Germany, e.g. to enroll into the Amazon Brand Registry, or ask for an express trademark application in Germany (fast track trademark registration proceeding) or the respective accelerated proceeding for a trademark in Germany. As a specialized Intellectual Property Law Firm in Germany with a European Trademark and Design Attorney and Certified IP Lawyer we’ve already assisted many Amazon marketplace sellers as well as startups and clients from different sizes and industries from around the world in IP matters in Germany and Europe and are looking forward to also help you to get your German trademark as fast as possible and to protect your intellectual property rights!

One of the fastest ways to get a registered trademark for the Amazon Brand Registry is through a German trademark where there is the option of an accelerated proceeding / express application. If one selects such an accelerated trademark application in Germany, this leads to an accelerated examination of the German Trademark Office (GPTO / DPMA) in Munich and the trade mark is often registered within some days or a few weeks in case there are no absolute grounds for refusal.

Apart from a German trademark registration, also a Swiss trademark can be a very quick option to get a fast trademark protection and there is also the possibility to select an accelerated proceeding in Switzerland which sometimes leads to a quick registration within some days (in case there is no provisional refusal).

Simply chose the required trademark from the following trademark overview and select the preferred package as well as the option for the accelerated proceeding to speed-up the registration process:
