If we leave the EU, Mewburn Ellis will manage the process to convert existing and new clients’ pending EU trade mark applications into UK trade mark applications – for free.
You don't need to anything now other than fill out the form below to sign up or request further information. Terms and conditions can be found below.
Terms and Conditions
- “Free” means that we will not make a service charge to convert the pending EU case, to file any forms at the UK IPO, and to record ourselves as the representatives. However, UK IPO official fees will still have to be paid at the point of conversion, as will any costs further on – including our service charge for dealing with publication and grant of the UK TM, or dealing with any UK objections or UK oppositions.
- At this stage, we cannot foresee what will happen with pending EUTMs which are under opposition at the point that Brexit takes effect, and until there is clarity on this matter these are excluded from the offer.
- The offer applies to pending EU cases, regardless of whether Mewburn Ellis is already responsible for the case or not.
- New clients will receive formal engagement letters, in line with professional regulation requirements. If a substantial number of conversions are being filed, we may need to request payment of the official fees in advance.
