Does the European Union Trademark apply for the United Kingdom?

The withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union due to Brexit has become effective as of February 1, 2020, however there will be a transitional period until December 31, 2020. Up to that date, the trademarks that are registered in the European Union will also be valid in the United Kingdom, but those that are still in the process of registration will need to be reapplied for in the United Kingdom (entitled to invoke priority for 9 months). Therefore, if you wish to initiate the registration process in the United Kingdom now, we recommend that you submit two applications, one for the European Union and one for the United Kingdom.
