Companies wishing to protect their trademarks without alerting the world to what they’re doing often file in Jamaica. Join us for a webinar on Thursday, February 8 at 4:00pm (ET) where Foga Daley partner Rachael Lodge Corrie discusses how the country’s unique trademark register helps filers gain protection without announcing their intentions to the world and walks you through the trademark landscape in Jamaica.
