  • Learn more about the drafting of IP contracts, including IP licensing and assignment agreements, at CITMA's intensive IP contracts training seminar at Bird & Bird in March 2018.

    Our expert speakers will also look at other contracts that often include IP clauses, including distribution agreements and M&A agreements, and will give you practical tips on things to look out for, and things to avoid.

    The afternoon concludes with drinks nearby at Balls Brothers, Shoe Lane where you will join CITMA Spring Conference delegates to celebrate the start of the 2018 conference. A great opportunity to network with national and international attorneys, solicitors, barristers and support service providers.
