Intellectual Property firm Baron Warren Redfern is hosting its first open event at Plus X Innovation in Slough on Thursday 4 July, where TVCC members can learn how to use the intellectual property system to their advantage. The seminar and networking event is from 10am to 12 noon and is free for all TVCC members.

Protecting IP assets such as inventions, brand names and product designs is vital to stave off competition, and to add value to any business. However, IP law is very complex and IP lawyers can be expensive, which often deters businesses from seeking the rights they need.

At the same time, those who engage with the IP system already may not be getting the best out of it, spending more than they need or not protecting the right things. 

However, Baron Warren Redfern partner Jerry Bridge-Butler will lift the lid on the IP industry and teach you how to get what you need out of the system, with a cost and timeframe which works for you. With 25 years experience as both a Chartered Patent Attorney and a Chartered Trade Mark Attorney representing some or the world’s largest companies as well as many start-up and smaller local clients, Jerry has seen it all. Benefit from his experience as he offers advice and guidance on how to identify your IP and how to protect it in a way which suits you. Learn some of the tricks of the trade when it comes to IP enforcement and IP portfolio management. Furthermore, find out how to get the best out of your IP attorneys, as often half the battle is choosing the right representatives and working successfully with them.

Baron Warren Redfern recently took up residence at Plus X Innovation in Slough, in order to better service clients in the Thames Valley. Its inaugural open event is free, but numbers are limited.
