The process of leaving the EU, which is set out in Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, will be a slow process of negotiation and take several years. The result of the referendum has no impact on Intellectual Property and Trade Mark rights in the short term and European Union law will continue to have effect in the UK. EU Trade Marks and Registered Community Designs will continue to be valid in the UK.
We will be keeping all our clients, contacts and associates across the world regularly up to date on any changing issues which may have an impact on their Trade Mark portfolios.
