The move follows the firm’s opening of a similar office in Bahrain last August and extends its direct filing capabilities across the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region to Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE. 

Unified GCC Trade Mark Law

The Muscat office will open in March and is located close to the Oman Trade Mark and Patent Offices. Its opening coincides with the implementation of the Unified GCC Trade Mark Law, which is expected to come into force across the GCC region during the course of 2016.
