Our trade mark attorneys represent clients at the UKIPO and EUIPO, ensuring trade mark rights are enforced and brand assets protected wherever possible. The IP opposition framework at the UKIPO is very different to that at the EUIPO. Our trade mark team has significant experience in opposition proceedings at both and can steer you through the various stages, including when to commence legal proceedings, when to negotiate, and when you may need personal representation.

Our team comprises expert negotiators, who are both strategic and tactical, who will advise you on the risks and options available while identifying the arguments that will help you win the case.

Often it’s possible to reach an amicable resolution – our attorneys can work with you to agree a commercial settlement. If matters do progress to a formal opposition, our attorneys will agree a strategy with you, using their knowledge and experience of the process to deliver targeted objectives, precise arguments and, ultimately, the results you need.

To discuss your requirements, please contact Lucy Walker.
