Trade mark licence agreement checklist

Make it Legal™ Checklist

Here are a few important steps to take to finish your document

Read the document to make sure it meets your needs and that you’ve provided all of the necessary information about the licence you want to grant. Remember that, if you have any questions, you can Ask a lawyer for advice.

If you are licensing a trade mark that is a graphical representation (ie it can be communicated visually, eg as an image), you must insert a representation of the trade mark into Schedule 1 of the Agreement before the Agreement is signed. Your representation could be drawings, digital images, or designs.

Download your Agreement then either:

  • print it and attach your visual representation(s) physically, or 

  • attach your representation(s) digitally (eg within a word document).

Add your representation under ‘Graphical representation of Mark’ within ‘Schedule 1 - The Mark’.

The licensor and licensee must both sign the document. If either party is a company or an LLP, its representative (ie signatory) must sign. 

The date of the Agreement is the date on which the parties sign, if that is the same day. If they sign on different days, the date of the Agreement is the day on which the last person signs.

You can sign your Trade Mark Licence Agreement by either:

  • signing in print. Print a copy for both parties. Both parties should then sign and date both copies by hand.

  • signing online using RocketSign

Each party should keep their own original signed Agreement.

A copy of your Trade Mark Licence Agreement will also be stored automatically in your Rocket Lawyer account ‘Dashboard’.
