J A Kemp Webinar: Brexit – An Update on Trade Marks and Designs

24 October 2019

A Brexit deal has now been agreed between the EU and the UK Government with the full text of the Withdrawal Agreement Bill published on 21st October.  However it must still be approved by Parliament and, even if agreed in principle, is likely to be subject to a number of amendments.  The Government is seeking to put forward a tight three day timetable for the legislation to pass through Parliament and events surrounding this matter will be unfolding over the next few days.  It remains the Government’s intention to leave the EU on 31st October.  There is therefore still uncertainty as to whether the deal will be approved in time, or whether an extension to the 31st October deadline [which has been requested and is with the EU for consideration] will be needed.  Either way, the position on IP has not been subject to any changes in the Withdrawal Bill.  This webinar, presented by highly experienced attorneys within J A Kemp’s Trade Marks and Designs Team, will discuss the impact of Brexit on EU Trade Marks and Designs and provide practical advice on how to manage portfolios in light of what is known to date.

Topics will include: 

  • What will happen to existing EU trade mark and design applications and registrations if an agreement is reached between the UK and EU.
  • What will happen in a “no deal” scenario.
  • Trade mark issues of interest, including use and reputation.
  • Design issues of interest, including unregistered community design rights and UK unregistered design rights.
  • Practical steps required now.
  • Any recent developments in the Brexit process.

This is a technical webinar aimed at anyone with an interest in EU trade marks and designs whether as an applicant/proprietor or legal professional involved in advising clients in this field.
