Join us in Geneva for a roundtable discussion on “Selected hot issues under art. 2 let. d of the Swiss Trademarks Act” (Questions essentielles dans l’application de l’article 2 let. d de la Loi suisse sur la protection des marques). The event will be held in French.

An audience discussion and an aperitif will round off the event.

The same roundtable discussion will also be held in Zurich, Switzerland, (in German) on December 15.
