Last Chance: AIPPI UK Garden Party this Wednesday

If you start talking about Brexit
on Wednesday, you will soon find the
AmeriKat in a nearby lavender bed...
The AmeriKat remembers her first AIPPI Garden party almost 10 years ago where, as a tiny kitten and encouraged by Kat Jeremy Phillips, she pawed across the lawn of Middle Temple where nameless faces and imposing judges were sipping their champagne.  Overwhelmed and slightly intimidated, she made her way to a table of lawyers where she was warmly welcomed by Arty Rajendra (then Rouse, now Osborne Clarke) who then kindly introduced the AmeriKat to the great and good of the London IP community.  

The annual Garden Party - traditionally held at Middle Temple - is a unique event where, in the spirit of AIPPI,  law firm allegiances and competition is left at the door and our profession unites to celebrate the achievements of another exciting IP year.  It is also a fantastic opportunity for more junior IP lawyers to start networking within the community (as the AmeriKat once did).

Save for a change of venue to the roof terrace of Allen & Overy in Spitalfields, this year should be no different.  Despite a glum forecast, the bright lights of the City will shine through as we celebrate another end of term of exciting IP litigation/deals and look forward to an ever changing landscape. And if the chatter about Brexit and IP starts to stress you out, the nearby lavender plants and pianist will help calm you down.

This year's party is being held this Wednesday (28 June) from 6-9PM (but in keeping with fashion there will bound to be after-hours dinners and drinks to join).  Registration is £35 for members and non-members.  To register click here.
