HGF Complete webinar: trade mark application procedures before the EUIPO and UKIPO

March 2022

Event date: 17th March 2022

HGF is hosting a series of HGF Complete webinars this Spring.

Our expert speakers will discuss trade marks and designs in the EU and the UK. We will compare and contrast the EUIPO and UKIPO and share our views on Benelux IP Office and German IP Office practices.

Trade mark application procedures before the EUIPO and UKIPO

You may know how to register a trade mark in the UK, Benelux and Germany, but each office has its own individual quirks of practice and law. Although all the trade mark laws of the EU and UK are based on a common trade mark directive, our webinar highlights the differences and similarities between the various IP offices and compares and contrasts with the EUIPO’s practice.

Where is it easier to register, where is it quicker to register, should you always look to the EUIPO to register on a pan-EU basis and how do you build an integrated European trade mark filing strategy? We discuss this and more in this webinar.

Speakers

Richard Wylie – Partner & Trade Mark Attorney

Lauren Somers – Trade Mark Director

Olivier ten Brink – Senior Trade Mark Attorney

Olivia Petter – Attorney-at-law
