Following the election of a new Conservative Government in the United Kingdom, the UK Parliament has approved legislation for the UK to leave the European Union on 31 January 2020. This is on the terms negotiated by Boris Johnson in the New Withdrawal Agreement. The transition period is set to last until 31 December 2020.

 

No change for Trade Marks & Designs registrations

 

There will be changes to Trade Mark and Design protection after the transition period (see below), however clients of Maucher Jenkins will not experience any change in service.

 

As an Anglo-German firm with offices in Munich and Freiburg, Maucher Jenkins is well placed to represent our clients’ interests in the UK, Germany and throughout the EU now and following Brexit.

 

Our UK, German and Irish lawyers and Patentanwälte are experienced in EU Trade Marks (EUTMs) and Community designs (RCDs) matters, as well as in contentious, advisory and IP contractual matters, and will retain rights of representation before the EUIPO after Brexit.

 

For more guidance on the changes, please follow the link below:

European Patents Unaffected by Brexit

 

The European Patent system is independent of the EU, so there will be no change after Brexit.
