Brexit: which impact on EU trademarks?

In three weeks, a new year will start and the United Kingdom (UK) will leave the European Union (EU). Should your company export in the UK, it is important that you make sure to safeguard your trademark rights there.
Good news: if you hold an EU trademark, or an international trademark designating the EU, and it is registered, it will be automatically cloned onto the UK register. Though care should be taken with, inter alia, recordals of possible licences and the renewal of the UK trademark. But one cup of tea at a time: the first step is to audit the IP rights in place.
For any question, our team would be pleased to advise you on the necessary steps.
