Intellectual Property

We help you make the most of your valuable creative assets.

Intellectual property (IP) is a key asset that requires unique legal protection to help you reap long-term financial and competitive benefits for you and your business.

We provide pragmatic commercial advice to help you enforce your rights or defend an action brought against you in an efficient and cost-effective way.

Our Intellectual Property Team is made up of experienced lawyers, dual-qualified practitioners and specialist trade mark attorneys. We were commended for our Intellectual Property expertise in The Times' '200 Best Law Firms 2021' list.

Our team is in the perfect position to provide a complete contentious and non-contentious IP service offering, through in-house attorney services, litigation advice and commercial contracts services.

We can help you safeguard your investments in IP through the protection and registration of your brands, inventions and designs. Our team can also help you maximise the value of that IP through the exploitation and licensing of your registered and unregistered rights, including trade marks, patents, designs, copyright, confidential information and know-how.

In addition, we can advise you on bringing, or defending, disputes related to the enforcement and infringement of IP. This includes passing off claims and company name and domain name disputes.

We offer an end-to-end service, from identification and protection of your rights, through to development, commercialisation, exploitation and enforcement, as well as defence against third party challenges. We advise on portfolio strategies, IP audits, clearance searches and vulnerabilities in exploiting your rights.

We can assist with IP disputes, whether acting in litigation matters before the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court (IPEC), or before the UK Intellectual Property Office, in company name disputes before Companies House, or in domain name disputes under the UDRP protocol.

We also provide a wide range of non-contentious commercial services, including licensing, commercial contracts, terms of business, IT contracts and data protection advice.

We file registrable rights with the UK Intellectual Property Office, the European Union Intellectual Property Office, the World Intellectual Property Organization and in national territories through our local agents. We are members of INTA, Marques, ECTA, Association of European Lawyers and Eurolegal, so we can draw on an extensive network of trusted solicitors, barristers, patent attorneys and trade mark attorneys to facilitate our international service offering, allowing us to help you register, monitor, defend and enforce your IP rights on a truly global scale.
