Brand Protection

From 1 January 2021 all EU trade mark registrations will no longer cover the UK.
However, all EU trade marks that have been registered before 31 December 2020 or ‘IP Completion Day’, will be automatically converted by the UK Intellectual Property Office into their own fully independent UK trade mark holding the original EU trade mark filing date. There will be no additional fees to pay.

The Government has introduced a new scheme (the Job Support Scheme) to replace the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme which ends on 31 October 2020. The Job Support Scheme is designed to assist businesses that are facing decreased demand due to the circumstances surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic.
