An intelligent brand understands that the value of a business is intrinsically linked to its Intellectual Property. We work to ensure that your IP assets are treated with all the importance of your physical assets.
Our Intellectual Property (IP) practice has a rich portfolio of experience, acting as a key adviser to both businesses and successful individuals in the creative, media, retail, and technology sectors.
We assist clients from early beginnings, throughout their growth and at the end of their business lifecycle to manage, protect, and exploit their IP.
We advise artists, sports stars, tech companies, big brands, emerging brands, and household names on a full range of commercial and contentious IP matters.
We are uniquely placed as legal advisers for many major trade associations for creative industries and for collecting societies.
Our work includes advising on brand protection strategies (including the registration of trade marks), advising on the exploitation of rights in creative industries, for example through film production agreements and publishing agreements, and on the licensing of software, trade marks, and copyright.
We regularly advise on trade mark disputes (including infringement, invalidity and revocation actions), on copyright claims, design right claims, domain name disputes, passing off claims and on proceedings in WIPO & Nominet, the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court, Company Names Tribunal, EU Intellectual Property Office and UK Intellectual Property Office.
