IP Futures

“It always seems impossible until it’s done”
(Nelson Mandela)


IP Futures were delighted to present an evening lecture by Emma Himsworth QC of One Essex Court, followed by drinks in Allen & Overy’s Fuse tech innovation space.

Emma’s talk, entitled “It always seems impossible until it’s done“, was a discussion in two parts:

  • Diversity and inclusivity – the IP profession past, present and future – a personal perspective; and
  • Where are we now with IP and Brexit?  Have we yet got beyond “I haven’t got the foggiest idea what is going to happen . . . ask Mr Blobby” (Chris Mason, BBC political correspondent)?

Registration was from 6.30 pm, with the main event starting at 7 pm. Our hosts Allen & Overy kindly provided light refreshments afterwards, so our visitors could stay around to chat with friends both old and new. It was a great way to meet other early career IP professionals, and an entertaining – not to mention inspiring – evening.

Venue: Allen & Overy, One Bishops Square, Spitalfields, London E1 6AD
