FICPI-UK aims to represent the views of its members and their firms, and thus to be broadly representative of Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys in private practice in the UK. This representation occurs in meetings with the IPO, BIS, IPREG and other relevant organisations. The views of the membership are sought in a variety of ways, and as part of FICPI, FICPI-UK also provides a voice to the UK profession’s views in international issues. FICPI was founded in 1906 in Europe, and now has members in over eighty countries around the World. It holds regular professional meetings, and its representatives have the opportunity to meet with the major IP offices on an annual basis.
