Coronavirus - Trade Mark/Patent Office Protocols

In light of the coronavirus outbreak and the various responses by authorities across the globe, there have been amendments to office hours or closures of Intellectual Property offices, and in some cases deadline extensions. To help you identify these updates, we have compiled local information from across our global IP team into one useful table below.

In response to the ongoing global developments of COVID-19, we have created a legal hub providing advice on various business issues and challenges ranging from HR policies, force majeure in supply chain contracts, insurance cover, delay/termination issues in contracts, to funding and regulatory challenges. Visit our hub >

Please note that this does not constitute legal advice, and the most accurate and up-to-date information can be found directly from the IP Offices. Please check with the relevant office or an Eversheds Sutherland lawyer before acting on any information below.

If you have any questions about how these changes may affect you, please get in touch with a member of our team:
