MIP Podcast newsletter header banner sample-2000.jpg

In the latest episode, Managing IP is joined by Gwilym Roberts and Lee Davies from the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys to discuss the UPC, IP ministers, diversity and more


In this episode, Managing IP was joined by representatives from the UK-based Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys.

Editor Max Walters was joined by CIPA’s chief executive Lee Davies and honorary secretary Gwilym Roberts, who is also chair of attorney firm Kilburn & Strode, to unpick the top talking points in the UK intellectual property profession.

We discussed CIPA’s involvement in shaping the UK’s role in the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership and how that tied in with the patent profession, as well as early trends from the Unified Patent Court.

We also looked at how law firm working practices and IP office hearings are becoming more flexible, and at the state of diversity in the profession.

Thank you for listening.
