BREXIT is on the horizon and will affect many aspects of business including Intellectual Property protection.

Ansons is hosting a breakfast on Thursday, 15th February 2018 from 8:00am-9:30am at the Clayton Hotel, Belfast to discuss what affect BREXIT will have on Intellectual Property Rights.

Having served Northern Ireland’s businesses for over 30 years, Ansons’ trade mark and patent attorneys are well placed to provide the advice needed to protect your IP during this period of transition.

We will consider questions such as:-

Will a European Union Trade Mark Registration still be enforceable in the United Kingdom?

Will use of a trade mark in the United Kingdom be considered to be use in the European Union?

Will use in the United Kingdom exhaust my trade mark rights in Europe?

Can I still validate my European Patent in the United Kingdom?

Ansons’ Trade Mark and Patent Attorneys will give a short presentation and be on hand to answer your questions.

Who should attend?

Anyone who has registered or unregistered Intellectual Property Rights in the UK and Europe and anyone interested in obtaining such rights.
