Intellectual Property

About

The Intellectual Property (IP) work that we do involves advising clients – big and small – from individuals, partnerships, private limited companies (including start-ups and spin-outs) and family businesses, through to large public companies and multinationals. Whatever the size, our lawyers are acutely aware of the varied and complex issues involved in securing, protecting and exploiting IP rights.

We help to maximise the value of your rights because we work hard to understand your business, how it may best exploit its intellectual assets and how it may be affected if its intellectual assets (whether its know-how and technology or its registered or unregistered intellectual property) are wrongly used by others.

We deal with all aspects of your intellectual assets. Whether it is protection of a trade name, development of a brand identity, creation of intellectual assets, exploitation of those assets, or pursuing or defending an infringement of a patent or trade mark, we have the experience and commercial insight to ensure that what may be one of your most valuable assets – in whatever form – is safeguarded and is yours to exploit.
