Frequently Asked Question

T. Following the end of the transition period, will I need to change my trade mark attorney to someone who is based in the European Economic Area (EEA) in order to file EU Trade Mark applications?

The continuation of UK Nationals' rights to represent applicants before the EU intellectual property office (EUIPO) will be determined by the outcome of any trade agreement agreed by 31 December 2020. However, we at WP Thompson are working with an EU national qualified to act before the EU IP to represent our clients at the IPO in all relevant matters. As a consultant, they will be a part of our firm and consequently we will be able to maintain our high levels of service and existing fee structure. Therefore, our clients will see a smooth continuation of the service we provide in relation to the services before the EU IPO.
