Brexit: trade marks and registered designs

Our briefing analyses the impact of Brexit on EU trade marks and Community registered designs.  These rights apply automatically across the whole EU, but without action by the UK government, these rights will no longer be protected in the UK once it leaves.  The briefing explains the steps rights holders can take to protect their position.
