This event will offer you limitless opportunities to celebrate with your friends and colleagues, and to enjoy the wide company at our best attended event of the year.

Bringing the profession together

You will be joined by your peers from across the profession and we are looking forward to welcoming Chartered Trade Mark Attorneys, Barristers, IP judges, CITMA Paralegals, students and more to one of the highlights of the calendar.

The internationally acclaimed Royal Lancaster, overlooking Hyde Park, is the new venue for our first Christmas Lunch since 2019.

The Royal Lancaster underwent an £80 million renovation in 2017, cementing its status as one of London’s most prestigious venues.

The lunch will incorporate the presentation of the CITMA awards, marking our profession’s achievements over the past year.
