Who we are
We are The Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys
Founded in 1934, chartered in 2016, the Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys (CITMA) is a professional membership organisation with the power to shape law and practice – nationally and internationally.
We represent the interests of over 1500 trade mark and design professionals, and fight to bring recognition to the work they do.
We also feed their enthusiasm for the profession through regular conferences and events, professional development courses, newsletters, social media debate and the CITMA Review.
Our community of members includes fully qualified trade mark attorneys, those in training and support roles, and barristers and solicitors with a trade mark or design interest working around the world.
CITMA has legal responsibility for regulating the profession, which we delegate to the Intellectual Property Regulation Board (IPReg).
