Many thanks to CITMA for its continued lobbying of the government on Brexit-related IP issues.
CITMA was among the organisations to give evidence to the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Legal and Constitutional Affairs as part of an inquiry into the effect of Brexit on legal services, advocating that UK Chartered Trade Mark Attorneys should maintain rights of representation at the EUIPO post-Brexit.
The APPG has recently published its report following the inquiry, recommending encouragingly that "The Government should seek to secure rights of audience in EU courts such as the CJEU and the EUIPO".

A new parliamentary report calls for Government to seek continued rights of representation for UK representatives at the EUIPO.
