Business as Usual re European Patents

The UK's decision to leave the EU will not affect European Patent applicants, and it will not restrict the ability of our patent attorneys to carry out European Patent work. The UK's membership of the European Patent Convention is independent of membership of the EU, as is the UK's membership of the World International Property Organisation.

Therefore, we can still handle European Patent applications for all UK and overseas clients; European Patent applicants will not lose any rights, and patents already obtained via the European patent office are unaffected.

Naturally, we can still also handle International ('PCT') Patent Applications for all UK and overseas clients. PCT applicants will not lose any rights.

If you would like to discuss the implications of the UK's exit from the EU on your IP portfolio, please feel free to contact us.
