Brexit – Intellectual property after the Brexit transition period

Whilst the UK left the European Union (“EU”) on 31 January 2020 (“Exit Day”) it remained within the EU’s legal framework during the Brexit Transition Period (“Transition Period”). When the Transition Period ends at 11:00 p.m. on 31 December 2020 (“Completion Day”), a suite of IP-related statutory instruments (as amended) (“IP Regulations”) will come into force, which amend the UK’s intellectual property (“IP”) regime to reflect the end of the Transition Period.
