Congratulations to Keltie's trainees for record success in the 2021 European Qualifying Examinations.
2020 and 2021 have been challenging years for exam-takers in the patent profession. Exam cancellations, a hasty shift to online exams with new digital formats, and the challenges of living, working and studying within the same four walls put many extra hurdles in the way of exam passes . We are delighted that Keltie's trainees have scored record passes in the European Qualifying Examinations this year.
Congratulations to all those at Keltie and throughout the profession who sat and passed exams this year, including Keltie's newest European Patent Attorneys: Emma Arbabzadah, Mark Levy, Monica Patel, Paul Waldron, Joseph Goldman, and Timo Haslam.
20.10.2022UK Corporation tax U-turn increases the allure of Patent Box scheme
The imminent rise in UK corporation tax makes the financial benefits of the Patent Box scheme look even more attractive, and there may now be additional incentive for many innovative and IP-focused companies to give Patent Box greater attention.
13.12.2022Women and IP: a continuing journey
It’s now over 30 years since I joined the patent attorney profession. When I started, there were relatively few female patent attorneys, partly due to much lower numbers of women studying STEM subjects at university. I recall I was one of about six women in a cohort of 90 studying chemistry at Imperial College, and there were even fewer in the engineering departments. Today, thankfully there are more women in the profession – but there are still things we need to improve.
