IPReg Second Consultation on Litigators’ Rights

16 March 2012

The IP Federation has submitted a response to the IPReg Second Consultation on Replacement of the CIPA Higher Courts Qualification Regulations and the ITMA Trade Mark Litigator and Trade Mark Advocate Certificate Regulations, urging IPReg to reconsider its second round of proposals. In the absence of any evidence to justify the removal of automatic rights of audience in the PCC, the existing rights of audience and rights to conduct litigation granted to patent and trade mark attorneys should be perpetuated.
