Model and trademark agent
Model and trademark agents represent clients in proceedings that refer to the acquisition, maintenance and other requirements regarding models, trademarks and geographical designations. Model and trademark agents also represent clients before courts and other state authorities if they meet the conditions stipulated by regulations that regulate representation before courts and other state authorities. The authorising authority authorises the agent for all or only certain procedural steps before the Slovenian Intellectual Property Office (hereinafter referred to as ‘Office’).
Prior to commencing the activity of representation in the field of models, trademarks and geographical designations, model and trademark agents must pass professional examination for model and trademark agents at the Office and be entered in the register of model and trademark agents.
