Free advice clinics

We run free trade mark advice clinics for members of the public and small business owners.

Following government advice on measures to tackle the spread of the Coronavirus, we have decided to temporarily withdraw our free trade mark advice clinics. 

At this stage we are unable to confirm when the clinics will be restarted.  We very much regret having to make this decision but the safety of the public and our members is of course a priority. 

It is still possible to ring our members for advice and contact details can be found at the following link: https://www.citma.org.uk/find-a-chartered-trade-mark-attorney.html

Thank you for your patience and we will update the website as soon as our advice clinics are up and running again.

Whether you're just starting in business or are already in the marketplace, you may not be aware of the importance of trade marks to your business success.

Our programme of advice clinics provides free advice from fully qualified professionals, who will offer advice on protecting your trade marks and avoiding infringement. 

The advice clinics are held at our members’ firms where a variety of times and dates are available – as shown below.  Select the time and date that suits you and this will take you to the booking page where you will be asked to register for your free 30-minute appointment. 

You will receive an email confirming the details of your advice clinic.  If you have any questions please contact Gillian Rogers, [email protected] 

You might also be interested in using our public search tool to find a Chartered Trade Mark Attorney who will be able to offer you advice on trade mark and design matters.

Many of our members offer free advice for a limited period of time - please check this with them prior to discussing your matter.
