We advise on all aspects of intellectual property law including copyright, designs, trademarks, patents, know-how and confidential information.

Intellectual property rights such as brand names or patents can be the most valuable assets of a business. Knowing the approach to take in order to protect, exploit or enforce intellectual property rights is key to looking after our client's interests - we have knowledge gained from our years of experience in this area of law.

Experience and expertise

Our clients include many household names. We have particular experience advising manufacturing businesses, food and ingredient producers, colleges and charities in the UK and overseas.

Our non-contentious work includes intellectual property audits, the preparation and negotiation of stand-alone agreements such as licences and research and development agreements and advising on the intellectual property aspects of corporate transactions.

We manage trademark and design portfolios for a number of major organisations and have filed trademarks and designs in numerous countries of the world.

When it comes to contentious work, knowing the correct approach to take is fundamental to acting effectively in any dispute involving intellectual property rights. We assist our clients to obtain interim injunctions where speed is of the essence. Sometimes damages claims may be more important for our clients. We provide balanced and common sense advice, pursuing infringers vigorously, and seeking settlement where it is the most appropriate solution.
