HGF Complete webinar: unregistered trade mark rights in the EU and UK

March 2022

Event date: 14th April 2022

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

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

Unregistered trade mark rights in the EU and UK

A comparison of the unregistered rights available to brand owners in the United Kingdom, Benelux and Germany. We compare and contrast the rights which are available to brand owners in those states and how they can be enforced and used in opposition and invalidity proceeding before the various national IP offices and the EUIPO. What is the evidential burden in proving such rights and practical tips on enforcing them.

David Potter – Partner & Head of Trade Marks

Jonathan Thurgood – Partner & Trade Mark Attorney

Susanne Bilderbeek – Senior Trade Mark Attorney

Julia Saladin – Attorney-at-law
