Welcome to the AJ Blog
4th July 2013
Welcome to the AJ blog, which has been developed as an online forum, for what we hope will result in some interesting and thought-provoking discussions regarding intellectual property and other matters.
Our experienced team of patent and trade mark attorneys will report on the issues surrounding intellectual property, in an accessible, informal and sometimes light-hearted way. We will be offering opinions and observations on high profile cases, discussing the potential repercussions of key legal updates, providing information on forthcoming IP events and suggesting useful resources.
Although, broadly focusing on intellectual property matters, we will also be addressing other areas of interest, considering the latest research findings, reviewing innovative new products, discussing business in general and reflecting on events taking place in the UK and around the rest of the world.
We hope our blog will keep you informed and entertained, and encourage everyone from IP professionals to businesses and academics to join in the debate, so please do leave a comment. If you would like to contribute to a post, or feature as a guest blogger, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Disclaimer: The blog content is intended as information only and not legal advice. If you require legal advice relating to intellectual property, please contact us directly.
