Trade mark practice in the UK may initially appear similar to that of the United States given the shared language, but while similarities do exist, there are also very real differences in law and procedure. In this webinar, hosted by Alt Legal and Meritas, Colin Sawdy of Meritas member law firm, Howard Kennedy LLP (England and Wales, UK), will provide a comparison of the two systems and highlight where US practitioners will need to be aware of key differences in UK practice. The discussion will focus on the following topics:

  • Developing a filing strategy for the US and UK
  • Anticipating possible objections in the UK with regard to descriptiveness and specifications
  • Handling opposition actions and tips for achieving a beneficial outcome
  • Managing client portfolios in light of Brexit
