Virtuoso Legal Newsletter March – Something for a Rainy Day
Virtuoso Legal Newsletter, March 2018: Something for a Rainy Day
March was a busy month for Virtuoso Legal. (Although it must be said, busy months have somewhat become somewhat the norm around here!)
We hope that you’ve been able to enjoy a similar gathering of momentum this year. As always, if there’s anything we can do to help, let us know.
With that being said, here’s a quick run through of our main updates this month.
A Big Thank You!
I would just like to extend a massive thank you to everyone who came to our meet and greet last Monday at the new office.
Moving has been quite the odyssey; and now our new signs are up, Northside Business Park finally feels like home!
If you were unable to make it on Monday, and would be interested in catching up – don’t hesitate to get in touch. It would be great to touch base.
GDPR Reminder (Just Around the Corner)
With April well and truly here, the world has roughly a month and a half to prepare for GDPR. This involves gaining a solid understanding of the data that your business collects and uses – and making sure that everything you do is lawful under the new rules on the 25th of May.
If you need any assistance or guidance, give Martin an email, and he will let you know how we can help you.
Updates and Blogs from March
March had a few articles for your next coffee break.
GDPR: What Do You Need to Do, Part 3 – The Rights of Individuals
One of the most important and eye-opening parts of the GDPR are the rights of data subjects.
Simply put, people now have more rights, and the ones they had in the past are much stronger than they were before.
This update to our GDPR “megapost” runs you through each one – helping you understand what your new responsibilities are.
Virtuoso Legal Secure Judgment for Zaap Restaurants
In March, Virtuoso Legal successfully secured judgment for Zaap restaurants in relation to a unique design right infringement.
Virtuoso Legal are delighted to work alongside innovative and unique businesses like Zaap to protect the big ideas that set them apart. We look forward to sharing more selected work highlights like this in the future.
Virtuoso Legal Attend the Lexis Nexis Legal Awards 2018
Virtuoso Legal’s team attended the Lexis Nexis Legal Awards this month, where they were nominated for the Customer Focus Award.
Whilst, sadly, we did not leave with the prize this time, the team was very pleased and contemplative about our nomination.
Virtuoso Legal Awarded Twice in the Acquisition International IP Excellence Awards 2018
We did however take two plaudits in the AI Global IP Excellence Awards.
The IP Protect team were recognised as Best IP Disputes Firm – UK and Brand Protection IP Solicitor of the Year – England.
Again, thoughts and feelings from the team can be read in the article.
Virtuoso’s World of IP Round Up | March 2017
Finally, March was a massive month for IP around the world. A couple of landmark judgments for adidas and Crocs (only one of which walk away with a spring in their step) – and the rumblings of a “trade war” between the US and China rooted in IP theft.
Lots of other updates, besides, highlight just how much IP really underpins the modern economy. Who knows what else will happen this year?
Thanks. Dr. Martin as always for keeping us updated!
Bye for now!
And with that, March’s Virtuoso Legal newsletter draws to a swift conclusion.
Do remember my door is always open – and Virtuoso Legal are always ready to fight your corner!
Whilst April will have its fair share of rainy days we will do whatever we can to help the sun shine on your business. Until next time!
