Your Brexit design and trade mark questions answered
It is the final quarter of 2020 and the end of the Brexit transition period is fast approaching. The UK’s exit from the EU will have significant implications for EU trade marks, design rights and also domain names. Now is the time to review trade mark portfolios, filing strategies, licensing and co-existence agreements and pending EU proceedings, so that the end of the transition period is as smooth as possible.
Client Brexit checklist
To help our clients navigate the course of the next few months, we have put together a Brexit checklist, available on request as a PDF or webinar, outlining steps that can be taken before 31 December 2020 and into 2021 to ensure the continued protection of IP rights.
Our Brexit checklist provides a convenient summary of action points to consider before and after 01 January 2021. Please contact your usual D Young & Co attorney to obtain your copy.
We have prepared an update on UK, EU and German trade marks which also covers Brexit.
If you would like a personalised presentation for you and your business, please do let us know.
