Covid-19 Outbreak – SH&P Response
The global coronavirus pandemic (Covid-19) is having an impact on us all to a certain degree. SH&P is committed to maintaining the health and welfare of its staff and to minimising any disruption of our services. The UK Government moved from a state of containment to one of delay and we are now in the midst of a “lockdown”. The Government’s official approach and guidance to individuals and businesses will evolve rapidly over the coming weeks. SH&P will continue to follow this advice and we have also taken our own measures to mitigate the effect of the virus on our staff and clients alike.

UKIPO extends all trade mark deadlines once again due to COVID-19
(Updated 11th May 2020)
As a consequence of the Coronavirus crisis the UK Intellectual Property Office (UKIPO) has conducted a further review on 7th May 2020 and the inevitable decision has been taken again to further extend all deadlines.
Since 24th March 2020, deadlines that had been set to fall after this date are defined as falling on “interrupted” days. This means that any deadline falling during the interrupted period is extended indefinitely.
A further UKIPO review will take place on 28th May 2020 and it will be decided whether or not to continue with the suspension. We will update again at that time.
In order to prepare for the expiry of the current suspended period all parties will be given a minimum period of two weeks for responding in order to meet the new 28th May deadline. In effect, this means that all current deadlines can be assumed to be 11th June 2020.
