Intellectual Property & Information Technology

About

Information Technology

Whether your business is at the cutting edge of technological innovation and you offer unique groundbreaking solutions to business problems, or you are in a less technical sector, with longstanding traditions which have been with you for decades, you will be likely to invest a substantial proportion of your resources in some form of IT infrastructure and IT applications. In today’s fast moving world, technology is a key to unlock many doors!

We advise on technology matters across a wide spectrum:

  • from developers of highly sophisticated and specialised applications, to providers of IT services and support; and
  • from customers procuring business-critical IT systems, to businesses commissioning new websites.

Our Technology team combines significant experience of IT projects, both large and small, with a keen commercial understanding and awareness of the relevant issues.

Intellectual Property

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.
