Intellectual Property Disputes

About

Any individual or business can find itself involved in an Intellectual Property dispute. The key to effective management of conflict is early expert input. Litigation can be very expensive and rarely benefits anyone but the lawyers. We know this and we understand that input at an early stage will help to create beneficial and cost effective solutions. When it is necessary to be aggressive we have the trial experience and knowledge to help win the fight, or if the opportunity is there, the commercial know-how and creativity to achieve a commercially favourable settlement.

Our Intellectual Property Dispute lawyers work on cases involving Intellectual Property rights, from trade marks and passing off, to designs, patents, copyright and database rights. We work where necessary with specialist overseas lawyers, trade mark and patent attorneys and other experts including barristers. We believe that the first step in dealing with any dispute is to identify the issue and create a plan, including potential costs and options for going forward; a plan which can be regularly revisited and updated as circumstances change. Our Intellectual Property Disputes team is partner led, but where appropriate more junior lawyers and paralegals can provide cost effective input.

"We found Hewitsons helpful and informative in our initial discussions, with costs and benefits of various approaches made clear. Once engaged, they were proactive and kept us well informed of progress. Although our particular claim was reasonably complex, it was pursued rigorously, and with a very satisfactory outcome".
Ms N


My enduring impression of Hewitsons is that it is a professional and client-dedicated organisation with a great deal of expertise. No stone was left unturned in pursuing my case. Soliciting legal advice has been a more complication and, at time, personally stressful process that I had initially expected. However, with the support of Tiffany Benson and her colleagues at Hewitsons I have felt supported all the way through this. thank you.

“Tiffany is very calm, clear and concise. She has the ability to take the client’s emotion out of the case which is rare. She is very timely and never inflammatory – something that the client can sometimes be guilty of. She is highly skilled in shaping correspondence which quietly lands punches without being offensive. I would recommend her to anyone. “  Client Testimonial
