Careers in Ideas

A free CITMA webinar for
Careers in Ideas Week
Friday 20 November 2020
12.30 – 1.30 pm


Hear from a panel of trainees and Chartered Trade Mark Attorneys
and find out about individual career journeys, what their day-to-day looks like
and why they chose the trade mark profession


As part of Careers in Ideas Week, to drive greater representation at entry-level, IP Inclusive co-founder CITMA (the Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys) developed an exciting careers webinar to offer advice and support to students and career-changers who aspire to become trade mark attorneys.

Delegates had the chance to hear real-life stories about what life is like in the trade mark profession, to engage with the panellists and to gain a better understanding as to whether this would be a career path for them. CITMA are committed to creating a more diverse and inclusive future for everyone – no matter their background.

The discussion was chaired by CITMA President Richard Goddard, and the panellists were:

  • Mark Bearfoot, Chartered Trade Mark Attorney at Global Brand Protection at Tommy Hilfiger
  • Hannah Burrows, part-qualified trade mark attorney at Reddie & Grose
  • Azhar Sadique, Chartered Trade Mark Attorney at Keltie
