Products and commodities are always main reflectors of their countries of origins.

Because consumers associate the quality of goods with their original place of production the necessity to establish a legal umbrella would be inevitable.

Geographical indications are not mere an indication to where products originate but also a key message about the country heritage and its history.

Geographical indications tell consumers that a product is produced in a certain place and has certain characteristics that are due to that place of production. That is my be the unique part of it and make it different from trademarks.

We at NJQ provide protection for Geographical indications pursuant to international laws and treaties and under an umbrella of related laws such as special laws for the protection of geographical indications or appellations of origin, trademark laws in the form of collective marks or certification marks; laws against unfair competition and a like.
