On 24th November 2016 The Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys (ITMA) became the Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys (CITMA), following the unveiling of its Royal Charter.
The Royal Charter was awarded to CITMA by The Queen at a meeting of The Privy Council in recognition of its important role in representing the specialist work of trade mark attorneys in the UK.
The Charter recognises the role of trade mark attorneys as specialist legal experts in the field of trade mark and design law.
Chartered Trade Mark Attorneys provide advice and risk assessments regarding company names and all aspects of branding protection. Their specialist knowledge can provide a commercial view and strategic advice to make sure that a company’s trade marks are registered correctly, and appropriately for maximum benefit.
If you have any questions about trade mark protection please contact Jerry Walder, BSc, CPA, EPA, CTMA, ETMA.
