Baron Warren Redfern (BWR) opens new base in Slough at Plus X Innovation

The world’s oldest Intellectual Property law firm, Baron Warren Redfern (BWR), has opened a new base in Slough at Plus X Innovation.

BWR is one of the UK’s leading medium-sized IP firms, and can trace its routes back to 1830. It practices in all areas of intellectual property, including patents, trade marks, designs and copyright. It’s head office is in Brentford, right at the point the Thames Valley reaches London, but it has now set up a base in Slough to better serve businesses in the heart of the region.

TVCC members can get an immediate taste of what BWR is about at its first open event at Plus X Innovation on Thursday 4 July, which focusses on how to use the intellectual property system to your advantage. Entitled “Get The Most Out of Your Ideas”, the seminar and networking event is from 10am to 12 noon and is free for all TVCC members. For full details and to book click here

Protecting IP assets such as inventions, brand names and product designs is vital to stave off competition, and to add value to any business. However, IP law is very complex and IP lawyers can be expensive, which often deters businesses from seeking the rights they need. At the same time, those who engage with the IP system already may not be getting the best out of it, spending more than they need or not protecting the right things.

However, BWR partner Jerry Bridge-Butler will lift the lid on the IP industry and teach you how to get what you need out of the system, with a cost and timeframe which works for you. With 25 years experience as both a Chartered Patent Attorney and a Chartered Trade Mark Attorney representing some or the world’s largest companies as well as many start-up and smaller local clients, Jerry has seen it all. Benefit from his experience as he offers advice and guidance on how to identify your IP and how to protect it in a way which suits you. Learn some of the tricks of the trade when it comes to IP enforcement and IP portfolio management. Furthermore, find out how to get the best out of your IP attorneys, as often half the battle is choosing the right representatives and working successfully with them.

Plus X Innovation is an innovation hub which brings together coworking, office space, a state-of-the-art workshop for prototyping, and a vibrant member community built for innovators and growing businesses. It is located at The Future Works building at 2 Brunel Place, Slough, SL1 1FQ.
