Client Identification


As chartered patent and trade mark attorneys we are a firm of “independent legal professionals” within the meaning of the Money Laundering Regulations 2007 forming part of EU and UK law.  As such, we have a statutory obligation to perform certain ‘customer due diligence’ measures to verify a new client’s identity.  Our client on-boarding procedures have been designed to comply with the following UK Government guidance:

What we Require from you

Please provide us with the following:

  • an official document containing a photograph which confirms your identity
  • documentary evidence of your residential address
  • documentary evidence of your date of birth

The above information may be available within a government issued document such as a passport and/or driving license.  An email containing image(s) of the original document(s) obtained from a scanner or mobile device will be sufficient.  We will not normally require sight of the originals.

In some circumstances we may also need to identify the ‘beneficial owner’, e.g. if you are acting on behalf of another person in a particular transaction.

Thank you for your assistance.  We look forward to welcoming you as a client of Cameron Intellectual Property.
