Virtuoso Legal Newsletter November, 2017

Virtuoso Legal Newsletter, November
Are you Ready for 2018?


Hello, dear reader!

How is it going?

I hope you’ve had a top month.

To say November had been busy for us would be the understatement of the year (and we’re nearly at the end of it!)

It has been absolutely manic here at Virtuoso – not least because we have moved our Leeds office (a BIG undertaking); whilst still having another record month when it came to work. Oh, and we also presented our inaugural “Become an IP Powerhouse” workshop at the Shard! (More on that later).

All very fun – just a bit tricky when it all happens at the same time.

Needless to say, we’re all reeling slightly, but very satisfied with what has been a bumper month.


Are you ready for the fireworks?

Would You Like Us To Help You Prepare for 2018?

In the meantime, Christmas has well and truly crept up on us all, and we’re at that time of year now when the focus begins to shift onto 2018.

We have some big projects on the cards. Not least: preparing for GDPR, the new Trade Secrets Act, Brexit(!), and a new website.

All the while whilst working out what we can do to champion IP and serve our clients better in the new year.

(There’s never enough time is there?)

I’m sure that you’re thinking about what you can do to crack on in 2018 too, and we’re more than happy to do what we can to help you!

With that in mind… we’re offering a free checklist and a follow-up 30-minute chat with one of our specialists to anyone looking to get a better sense of how their IP can make them more money in 2018.

Click the button below to download the checklist, and we will be in touch.

November’s Updates and Blogs

Phil (and Myself) present “Become an IP Powerhouse” at the Shard

A real highlight…! Phil took the reigns and delivered a whistle-stop tour through the core intellectual property rights – fielding questions from the crowd about their main problems. The workshop was a fantastic success and we look forward to running a similar one again soon.
