Have you got a brilliant food product idea that you can’t wait to get off the ground? Then our upcoming masterclass with leading trade mark attorney Hazel Tunney and Gráinne Mullins, founder of Grá Chocolates, is the one for you. Smart Move: How to legally protect your genius food product, which will be hosted by F&W editor Gillian Nelis, is a practical session designed to inform and will take place online on August 9 at 4pm - register here.

During the session, Gráinne Mullins, who featured on the 2023 Forbes 30 Under 30 list, will share the story of how she worked with Hazel and her colleagues at Tomkins Intellectual Property to legally safeguard her product, including its unique design. Hazel, who has 20 years of experience in the area, will also share her legal expertise on topics like intellectual property, trade marks, designs, domain names, and online IP issues.

“Food product creators come to lawyers when a problem arises, or when they are are being bought out and need to address their trade marks and patents urgently,” explains Hazel Tunney of her work. “The smarter founders come to us before those scenarios occur, and often find that entirely safeguarding the intellectual property of their product or service is less expensive, and less time consuming, than imagined.”

Throughout the session, guests will have the opportunity to ask our two experts questions, so if you’ve ever wanted to know how to protect your ideas, this masterclass is a must. Best of all? It’s completely free!
