The Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys, which was founded in 1934, promotes high standards of training, qualification and continued learning in order to ensure that the Trade Mark Attorney profession is able to undertake on behalf of clients, large and small, all of the work associated with securing and protecting trade marks and other intellectual property rights, for example registered designs, both in the UK and abroad. The Institute is the professional body responsible for the regulation of the Trade Mark Attorney profession under the Legal Services Act 2007, and for representing the interests of the profession, nationally and internationally. At any time, the Institute has about 1600 members; as well as the core fully qualified Trade Mark Attorneys, its membership also includes those training to be Trade Mark Attorneys, foreign Trade Mark Attorneys and other professionals in other related areas of the law e.g. Barristers who have a Trade Mark/Design interest. The job of a trade mark attorney is to advise clients on a wide range of trade mark-related issues, and to act on their behalf in dealing with the registration authorities in the UK and European Union and, through local associates where necessary, overseas, as well as with third parties. A trade mark attorney must therefore have a thorough grounding in UK and foreign trade mark law and practice, and a working knowledge of related issues such as copyright, industrial designs, passing off at common law and unfair competition.
