Fieldfisher is delighted to inform you that we will be hosting our annual IP Crammer® at our riverside offices on Tuesday 10 October 2017.

The half-day seminar will cover significant legal developments and hot topics from the last year in relation to copyright, designs and trade marks, both in the UK and the rest of Europe.
