We’re delighted to announce this year’s one-day seminar for litigators, kindly hosted by Laytons LLP at their London offices beside the River Thames.

Enjoy a full day of talks and sessions with solicitors and members of the IP bar. 

Charlotte Blythe, Hogarth Chambers, will share updates on the disclosure pilot scheme before Jacqueline Reid, 11 South Square, covers uses of notice to admit fact and requests for further information.

After lunch, Chris Hall, 11 South Square, examines UK IPO appeals to the High Court. 

Later in the afternoon, John Abbott , Laytons LLP, will discuss ADR in IP disputes, before Chris Ryan shares when and how to get off the record if things go wrong between you and your client.

We’ll provide lunch at 1pm and, after the seminar, invite you for drinks and opportunities to catch up and network.

We hope you can join us for this annual event.

Please note, this seminar is open exclusively to Ordinary and Fellow CITMA members.
