Act Now to Record Your UK Address for Service

As from 1st January 2024, it will be necessary to record a UK address for service where new contentious proceedings are launched against a UK comparable trade mark or re-registered design.

We advise strongly that trade mark owners act now to safeguard their rights by recording a UK address for service.
