Introduction to Trade Marks – with Alex Nott, Trade Mark Attorney

26 April, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

An introduction to trade marks in the UK; what they are, how they work and the steps involved in registering them.

Intro to Trade Marks: The Whats, The Whys, The Whens, The Wheres, and The Hows

Join Chartered UK Trade Mark Attorney, Alexandra Nott for a whistle-stop tour of need-to-know information relating to trade marks.

The session will focus on the following:

  • The Whats: what is a trade mark, what are the different types of trade marks, what does having a trade mark enable the owner to do
  • The Whys: why is it worth registering a trade mark, why are trade marks useful for businesses, why is trade mark searching important
  • The Whens: when should a trade mark be registered, when does a trade mark need to be renewed
  • The Wheres: where should you conduct trade mark searches, where should you register a trade mark
  • The Hows: how do you go about registering a trade mark, how much does it cost

The session will take the form of a 30-40 minute talk, followed by some time for questions. We look forward to seeing you there.
