Webinar - 4th June 2020 - 09:30am


A webinar in conjunction with Marks & Clerk

Marks & Clerk
Marks & Clerk has long been recognised as one of the leading patent and trade mark attorney firms across the globe, with eight offices across the UK and a further eight in North America and the Asia-Pacific.
You will find that our patent and trade mark attorneys together with our associated firm of solicitors offer a comprehensive range of intellectual property services - covering patents, trade marks, designs and copyright. This includes obtaining protection worldwide, portfolio management, strategic and commercial advice, licensing, enforcement, due diligence and litigation.

Intellectual Property
Having the right type of intellectual property protection helps you to stop people stealing or copying:
  ♦ the names of your products or brands
  ♦ your inventions
  ♦ the design or look of your products
  ♦ things you write, make or produce

It also adds significant value to your business for when you are fundraising or on exit

The session will last 60 minutes with a further 20 minutes for Q&A. It will be presented with lots of examples and case studies so that you can easily understand the various IP approaches. The different types of protection will be discussed and the impact that Brexit will have on IP.

Additionally you will be able to make an informed decision on where you should invest your scarce capital to gain the most IP bang for your buck or just get to market quickly.

Now is the time to get up to date on protecting your ideas!
