What we do

Intellectual Property

We are intellectual property specialists: trade marks, passing off, copyright and designs form the backbone of our work across the industry sectors. We advise on obtaining and defending IP registrations, and similarly defending attacks from IP-holders. In protecting IP rights, speed is often everything. We give advice to reflect that and also have experience obtaining and defending emergency injunctions. We take IP disputes to trial but will always look to find alternative means of resolving disputes, including mediation. Our IP expertise is also transactional, and we regularly advise on the licensing, sale and purchase of IP rights.
