Carrollanne Lindley and Lorraine Lowell Neale from our highly regarded trade marks team have worked with LexisNexis to update the Practice Note titled ‘Managing a trade mark portfolio’.
This Practice Note provides strategic and practical advice on managing a trade mark portfolio. It covers the issues to take into account when setting up the portfolio and best practice for maintaining it, including advice on management issues such as: dealing with deadlines; renewals; and budgeting. It sets out potential strategies for monitoring the activities of third parties and enforcing the trade marks against them, and outlines ongoing considerations relating to the audit and review of the portfolio.
We are honoured to have worked with the editorial team at LexisNexis and to be the only named trade marks firm featured on the experts page as contributing authors. On the Lexis®PSL website you can view the IP expert profiles of Carrollanne and Lorraine.
