Cameron Intellectual Property establishes partnership with German firm
Cameron Intellectual Property has established a partnership with German-based RGTH (Richter Gerbaulet Thielemann Hofmann) to mitigate the uncertainty posed by Brexit.
The relationship aims to ensure the firm retains a seamless service across the EU regardless of the outcome of Brexit.
Founded in 2011 by Stewart Cameron, the business provides a full range of intellectual property services relating to patents, designs, trade marks and copyright.
Mr Cameron said: “At a time of growing uncertainty for British business, we have been firmly focused on responding to the demands in the market place and developing partnerships which bring more confidence, continuity and value for our clients.”
He continued: “Although patents will not be affected by Brexit at all, since they are not EU rights, some uncertainty remains regarding how Brexit will affect trade mark and design rights since they are EU rights and are therefore unlikely to cover the UK post-Brexit.
“Whilst this is a potential threat, it is also a potential opportunity since UK national trademarks and designs, which have perhaps become less popular over recent years, will once again become more important and potentially crucial to many businesses.”
Torge Thielemann of RGTH said: “This is an excellent development for our firm since Brexit could also otherwise create some complications for our clients looking for protection in such an important market as the United Kingdom.”
