Registrar of Intellectual Property Ms. Jihan Williams was the featured presenter at a Zoom video conferencing Webinar organized by the St. Kitts and Nevis Bar Association on Thursday 10th September 2020. She presented on the topic “Successful Trade Mark Applications – Questions to Ask Your Client and What You Need to Know”.

The event was the latest installment in the Association’s Continuing Legal Education series. In recent times these have been conducted with all presenters and participants connected virtually.

The main intended beneficiaries of the session were drawn from the legal fraternity in St. Kitts and Nevis. However, the Zoom link was shared with many other interested persons. Consequently, attendees included viewers representing a wide array of occupational and other interests both locally and from as far afield as Montserrat, St. Lucia and The Bahamas.

The presentation covered topics such as the procedure to apply to have a trademark registered, tips on avoiding common pitfalls in the process and points that attorneys should apprise their clients of prior to the submission of an application.

Ms. Williams also fielded questions from among the approximately 78 persons who participated via the Zoom platform as well as those following on Facebook. She provided responses and explanations in real time. She also gave the assurance of the availability of her Power Point presentation via dispatch to the email addresses of all concerned.
