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.
