The practice of re-registering UK Registered Designs and Registered Community Designs in the Cayman Islands will be introduced for the first time (direct filings are not available). The practice of re-registering UK and EP(UK) patents to the Cayman Islands will continue (direct filings are not available).
Managing Partner Huw Moses notes: “We are pleased to share our IP expertise with local business owners and look forward to helping them protect their Intellectual Property rights under the new law.”
