Coronavirus / COVID-19 Update
We provide a brief summary below on the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on our services and official deadlines. This page will be kept up to date.
Brookes IP remains able to offer all our usual services relating to intellectual property. As of Monday 23rd March, all staff are working remotely but the office is being checked regularly to collect physical post and any answerphone messages. In these challenging times, it would help us if all clients can contact us via email, either to your usual contact or to firstname.lastname@example.org, rather than by phone.
The European Patent Office (EPO) has currently extended all deadlines to 17 April 2020. See the EPO information here.
The EUIPO (EU trade marks and designs) has extended all deadlines to 1 May 2020. See here.
The UKIPO has certified an interruption and all deadlines from 24 March 2020 are extended until further notice. See here.
Our thoughts are with all our clients and contacts around the world at this worrying time.
