On 3 May 2016 Dr Trevor Davies outlined important sections of the Code of Conduct for Patent and Trade Marks Attorneys 2013, discussed potential conflicts of interest, and provided practical tips to assist practitioners to meet the requirements of the Code of Conduct and minimise risk of potential conflicts and complaints from clients. Patent and trade marks attorneys must be familiar with the Code of Conduct and comply with the provisions at all times. There are obligations that require an attorney to only act where the attorney has appropriate competency. Attorneys must provide written information and cost estimates to prospective, new and existing clients. If attorneys ensure that at all times they act in the best interest of their clients then attorneys should comply with the professional obligations set out in the Code of Conduct.
