Brexit and intellectual property – understanding the implications for patents and trademarks



Effective patent and trademark management comes with its own distinctive challenges. When coupled with the uncertainty and fluidity of Brexit, many IP professionals have found themselves stymied as to how they should plan and proceed.

The advent of Brexit brings distinct implications for patents and trademarks that need to be understood and considered. This webinar will provide the latest information on the status, notable changes and implications of Brexit for IP owners. It will also offer guidance on preparing and planning for these changes, including approaches and strategies to protect and maximise your valuable IP assets.

This webinar will be ideal for anyone engaged in the oversight – both administrative and strategic – of patent or trademark portfolios.
