Top patent lawyer Jason Boakes

With major industry players beginning to enforce their LED patents among small- to medium-sized manufacturers, it’s crucial to be well-informed about intellectual property and stay on the right side of the law.
Fortunately, delegates to this month’s Lighting Fixture Design Conference in London – organised by Lux Review magazine – can get free, expert legal advice from one of Britain’s top patent lawyers. Jason Boakes of Secerna has worked with some of the top LED luminaire and control gear manufacturers in the lighting industry. He’ll be on hand for the two days of the conference for a free half-hour consultation.
Jason will also give a special presentation on the strategies you should adopt to stay legal and defend yourself in patent disputes.
If you’ve not already a delegate, places are still available. For more information, including the full programme and rates, visit

The current regulations allow for the absurdity of a Part L-compliant fitting (55lm/W) to be left on in unoccupied spaces.
