Next South West Regional Event: Cardiff – Friday 1 July 2016

I am delighted to announce that Rhys Williams and Edward Nation of Abel & Imray have kindly agreed to host the next Informals workshop session, entitled “Dealing with the Lay Client”:

“It is likely that your client list includes large IP savvy firms that understand what makes an invention patentable, and the application and prosecution process. But what about a regular Joe from the street? Or a start-up about to enter the world of IP? Have you ever been caught off guard in a client meeting?  This informal seminar aims to prepare Informals for these situations through fun and interactive scenarios based on the personal experiences of attorneys at Abel & Imray.”

Times and Locations:

12:00 (TBC) – Meet at A&I’s Cardiff office (3rd Floor, 3 Assembly Square, Britannia Quay, Cardiff, CF10 4PL)

12:30 to 14:00 – Lunch in Cardiff bay (location TBC)

14:00 to 17:00 – Workshop by Rhys Williams and Edward Nation (held in the Wales Life Sciences Hub)

17:00 onwards – Food and drinks in Cardiff (location TBC)

The meeting room can hold up to about 20 people, so places on the workshop will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis. Please send an email to to confirm your place as soon as possible. If you are unable to make the workshop but would like to meet up with us for drinks afterwards, please send me an email and I will forward you details of where we are going closer to the time.
