Your 1 month Brexit trade mark countdown – essential preparations prior to and after 01 Jan 2021

With just one month remaining until the end of the transition period (01 Jan 2021), Chartered Trade Mark Attorney Flora Cook will discuss the essential actions trade mark owners need to consider in order to be Brexit-ready.

The webinar will cover:

  • What steps need to be taken by the end of December 2020?
  • The comparable UK trade mark.
  • Implications for pending EU registry actions.
  • EU and comparable UK trade mark renewals, expiry and late renewals.

We will also consider actions for 2021 as the new regime commences, including consideration of:

  • The UKIPO requirement for a UK address for service for new UK trade mark applications and requests to start contentious proceedings.
  • Refiling new UK applications where an EU trade mark is not yet registered.
  • Contentious proceedings in relation to re-filings and/or comparable UK trade marks.

We are monitoring UK Government, UKIPO and EUIPO updates concerning these final days in the Brexit transition process and will incorporate any key last minute points into this webinar. If you would like to share any specific questions for consideration during the presentation please email us at registrations@dyoung.com.

This webinar will be of particular interest to UK and EU trade mark owners and in-house counsel.
