CITMA: Beyond Brexit: dawn of a new era for IP in the UK /

Having navigated its departure from the EU, the UK is set to maintain its place as a global IP leader, says Richard Goddard of the Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys.

As the UK embarks on the post-Brexit era, its future is bright as a key player on the global IP stage. The UK was already recognised worldwide for the strength of its IP systems and infrastructure, which is complemented by its network of highly qualified and trusted legal representatives and underpinned by its respected IP court and dispute resolution system.

Now, with the uncertainties of Brexit largely resolved, the UK is well placed to seize the opportunity to consolidate and advance its position as an international hub for IP; ready to set a world-leading standard for IP registration, enforcement, and monetisation.
