With the clock ticking towards December 31, trademark lawyers and firms are preparing for some major impacts of Brexit, not least on representation rights at the EUIPO. The panel questioned whether solely UK firms would be able to recoup lost work from the EU.
Diversity and inclusion was also a hot topic, with the panel expressing a range of views on how the UK profession can improve – especially on inclusion, which is sometimes less prominent. There was consensus that much more can be done despite some positive developments.
There was also room for discussion on the Unified Patent Court, judicial changes, and the hope that things can return to normal soon amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
We hope you enjoy the podcast.
