BREXIT: INDUSTRIAL AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

The United Kingdom's (UK) exit from the European Union (EU) is proving to be a long and undoubtedly uncertain process.

The UK's presence in the EU for over four decades has woven not only economic but also political and, above all, legal relationships that are now difficult to unravel.

It is not that the same years are needed to "unweave" the relationship but it is difficult to reach agreements that look equally after the interests of the citizens of both communities, the British and the European, with the aggravating circumstance that some of these rights, such as those relating to industrial property, extend over time beyond the effective date of departure.

Since the date of departure in 2017, negotiations have been held to establish the conditions under which the rights acquired by citizens in both territories will be respected.

Between these negotiations, agreements have been reached on industrial and intellectual property matters, although many issues are still outstanding.

We have collected the articles that our H&A professionals have been writing to follow up the negotiations, and two schedules summarising the situation as of March 2020.
