‘Royds at The Spring Fair 2010 International’ by Stephen Welfare

Stephen Welfare, Head of Intellectual Property at City law firm Royds, supported by lawyers from the corporate and litigation departments, will again attend the annual Spring Fair to provide on the ground support and advice to members of the British Jewellers’ Association, the British Travelgoods and Accessories Association, the Jewellery Distributors Association and other clients.The Spring Fair is the largest trade fair in the UK covering products as diverse as jewellery, giftware, kitchen and dining ware, greeting cards and stationery, toys, furnishings and more. Last year there were over 52,000 visiting buyers. At this year’s show there will be, as usual, thousands of exhibitors (including 600 overseas suppliers) and over 250,000 new products launched

Stephen, who advises the BJA and its members, and many other organisations in the giftware and luxury goods markets on protecting their designs and intellectual property rights commented “It will be great to be at the Spring Fair again and to meet with so many BJA, BTAA and JDA members and other clients whilst they are at such an important event. We go to protect our clients’ interests by keeping an eye out for possible infringements and to provide immediate advice with any issues that arise. We are there to offer advice and support to established businesses and new start-up firms, designers and inventors alike. It really is an incredible event to attend”.

Royds has also produced a comprehensive guide to Agency and Distribution which it provides for the many international buyers and distributors who attend the show who are seeking UK agents and distributors.
