Waterfront Solicitors are delighted to announce that Matthew Harris,  joint head of Intellectual Property at Waterfront, has been appointed to the Law Society’s Intellectual Property Working Party.

The Law Society of England and Wales is the independent professional body for solicitors, established in 1825.  Its Intellectual Property Working Party keeps under review and promotes improvements in intellectual property law, practice and procedure. The work of the Working Party is often highly technical and spans domestic, European and international law, covering all aspects of intellectual property law including copyright, designs, trade marks and patents. Members engage in detailed discussions of policy, legislative developments and intelligence outside a client specific focus, and respond to government proposals and consultations.   Matthew’s term of office will run until 31 August 2015.
