This masterclass promises to be a participative and provocative session working with Appleyard Lees*, European Patent & Trade Mark Attorneys, who will be drawing on their experience with 3 key objectives in mind:

  • To help delegates spot and avoid common traps associated with IP
  • To demonstrate with real-life case studies how these traps are very real and potentially very damaging
  • To touch on the latest hot topics and news relating to IP

The session will help attendees explore the world of IP and get a greater understanding of how knowledge and protection of this valuable asset can be crucial.

If you're looking to protect or exploit your business IP then this is the masterclass for you!

Following the morning session delivered by IP experts, our masterclass series provides you with the opportunity to attend an individual 30 minute 1 to 1 session with a patent attorney.
