UK Intellectual Property Office

Following extensive discussions with representatives from the industry, the IPO has publicly endorsed Intellectual Property Insurance and provided a helpful guide to the cover on its website.

The guide is commendably comprehensive, covering the different types of product available, the benefits of the insurance and the routes by which businesses may obtain it. It’s an ideal resource if you’re a UK broker that’s new to IP insurance seeking an introduction to the subject, or even if you’ve experience broking IP and want to refresh your memory and perhaps learn something new.

The guide is just the latest in a series of efforts by the IPO to educate business, particularly SMEs, about the importance of protecting Intellectual Property. Part of this education process involves running IP training courses, one of which is specifically designed for insurance brokers. If you’re interested in attending the course let one of the team here know.
