Leading Scottish law firm holds intellectual property seminar for business owners

Kirsty Stewart, head of Thorntons’ in-house trade mark agency

BRAND is crucial to any business owner. Name, logo, symbols, slogan – even colour – can be associated with a brand. It’s vital that assets such as these are protected with a trademark which provides the legal right to stop others from using a brand that has been developed and invested in.

With so many businesses yet to trademark their brand, Thorntons Solicitors is hosting a webinar to equip business owners with all the information they need regarding trademarks. On Wednesday 3 November, Legal Director & Trade Mark Attorney Kirsty Stewart will present an hour-long webinar and Q&A, in which she will discuss the power of IP to protect and build a business.

The webinar will be accessible even to beginners, explaining exactly what a trademark is, and why it is important for business owners to protect their trademarks. Kirsty will outline the ‘do’s and don’ts’ of trademarking, and how unregistered trademark rights may affect a business.

Kirsty, who heads Thorntons’ in-house trademark agency, said: “We’re encouraging business owners and entrepreneurs to join us at 9:30 am on Wednesday for this masterclass in trademarks. It’s so important that everyone is informed about their rights regarding intellectual property and I’ll be outlining the best ways to protect these assets, and how Thorntons can help.”
