Sectors and Services

Protecting your intellectual property in the UK

What we do:

The Intellectual Property Team has substantial experience and expertise in advising clients from all over the world in their legal requirements when entering the UK market. As critical IP rights are territorial in nature and require country-specific registration in order to be enforceable (such as patents, trade marks, designs, and in some countries, copyright), it is vital for businesses breaking into a new geographical market to have their protection strategy in place well before actually commencing trading.

As more and more businesses increasingly rely on intelligence and data, IP rights have become an indispensable part of the company assets and commodity. We can help you protect your main assets in the UK or any other country that you are trading in.

How we can help:

  • Our expert team will assist you in asserting and protecting your rights, from the initial protection stages, to negotiating contracts or resolving disputes.
  • We have a wealth of international legal affiliates through our relationships with International Trademarks Association (INTA) and the Lexwork International and Interact Law legal networks.
  • We offer advice to companies and individuals on all levels of the retail, manufacturing, technology, creative, IT and entertainment sectors on intellectual property as well as licensing, commercial agreements, social, employment and business structures.
