    Whether it’s that sinking feeling when you receive a notice about a client’s insolvency procedure or the excitement of a client wanting to bid for some assets to be bought out of insolvency, this seminar will provide the insights and tips you need to navigate a brand safely through the afterlife of its last owner.

    We will deal with an explanation of the different types of insolvency and how they affect trade mark registrations including the effect of Company Voluntary Arrangements and how to resurrect a trade mark when its owner has been dissolved.

    History shows that good brands can survive multiple financial crashes – make sure you and your clients are winners not losers in the turbulent world of insolvency.

    Barbara Cookson is an experienced Chartered Trade Mark attorney and solicitor advocate who started her trade mark journey acting for purchasers of the BIBA brand and has substantial experience of trade mark assignments and transactions as well as litigation both for and against parties in close encounters with insolvency. After partnership in a London law firm, she has run her own solo practice, Filemot Technology Law Ltd, since 2005 and is now based in York.

    Tim Pope is a licensed insolvency practitioner and insolvency lawyer with over 35 years experience of insolvency and is currently Director of Legal (Insolvency) at drydensfairfax solicitors in Leeds.
