3 CLE/CPD

This practical workshop will take in-house counsel through the life of a brand, providing guidance on issues which regularly arise. Our IP experts will use a case study of a fictitious brand where we will cover: 

  • Brand creation - how to go about clearing new brands, issues to look out for, and common pitfalls
  • Exploitation - the dos and don’ts of licensing, ownership and intra-group arrangements
  • Enforcement - when to take action in respect of infringement and when not to, the things you should have in mind when you do, and how to make it cost-effective
  • Maintenance - how best to keep the integrity and value in a brand, and a look at the international picture

The hands-on workshop will draw on real-world experience, and arm you to deal with issues which could affect your business's brands. 

Places are limited for this workshop so early registration is recommended.
