March 2022

Event date: 31st 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 opposition and invalidity proceedings

A comparison of how trade mark opposition and invalidity proceedings are conducted in the UK, Benelux and Germany. We highlight the similarities and differences between trade mark opposition and invalidity proceedings in these three states and the EUIPO, providing practical tips on what to argue, the evidential burden in the proceedings and how one can use proceedings as part of pan-EU proceedings.
