Virtuoso Legal present “Become an IP Powerhouse” at the Shard: It’s a long way up!

Virtuoso Legal were delighted to host a special workshop event “Become and IP Powerhouse” in conjunction with The Office Group at the Shard in on November 29th.

The purpose of the workshop was to help businesses become an “IP Powerhouse “-  enabling them understand the hidden value of intellectual property in their businesses.

Head of IP Protect and Virtuoso’s London Office, Philip Partington lead the event, with principal and founder Liz Ward and Martin Douglas Hendry also in attendance.

Through the process of the workshop, Phil introduced attendees to:

  • The principle intellectual property rights
  • Where they can be found (and are commonly overlooked) in businesses
  • Examples of these rights in action
  • Tips and tricks that the could apply to power up their IP

The session overran slightly (note: it’s difficult to fit a complete whistle-stop tour of intellectual property law in 1 hour!).

It also included a chance for attendees to ask questions: during the course of the session, and afterwards 1-2-1 with our IP specialists.

Of the event, Philip Partington said:

First thing’s first, thank you to The Office Group for helping us host such a fantastic event at The Shard. There’s no better place to be when championing the unsung value of UK businesses’ intellectual property – than in the Shard, looking over London at work. With that being said, we were really pleased with how engaged our audience were; each bringing their questions and concerns to the fore during the workshop. We hope that everyone enjoyed it, and learned a lot – and we look forward to assisting those who attended in powering up their IP.”

Following the event, attendees all left with copies of Liz’ book “If You’re so Clever: Why Aren’t you Rich?” (Some signed!) As well as the opportunity for a complementary consultation with Philip or Liz to discuss their IP needs.

Principal, Liz Ward stated:

In the UK, intellectual property is increasingly becoming the backbone of value within businesses. Whether it’s brands that stand out, creativity that draws customers eyes, technology, design or know-how… the value of IP and it’s importance to businesses cannot be understated. It was brilliant to see this reflected in the room at the Shard – with all attendees showing great enthusiasm. With that in mind, I  have no doubts that all who attended yesterday will go on to become true IP powerhouses.”

On account of the success of the event, we are looking to run an identical (and perhaps even better version of the event early in the New Year.
