Only a few more months and the definitive Brexit will have marked its one year anniversary. However, before this date, there is still one more important deadline to take into account. Namely, on 30 September 2021, the deadline to claim an EU filing date will expire. After 30 September 2021 applicants for a UK right will no longer be able to claim the filing date of an EU trademark or design application that was still pending on 1 January 2021.
If you had an application pending before the EUIPO on 1 January 2021 and you are considering expansion to the UK, now is the time! IFORI would be happy to assist you with your trademark or design application in the UK.
