Defending & protecting your key asset.
Intellectual property runs like a vein through everything a business does and a clear strategy for the protection of this significant asset is crucial to success. When issues emerge, be they allegations that your business is infringing another company’s IP rights or a competitor is infringing your rights, you must take speedy and decisive action. You need advisers who can provide you with pragmatic, business-focused strategic advice which will support you in maintaining the competitive advantage of these critical assets to ensure that you stay ahead of the game.
Our Intellectual property team advises businesses across a wide variety of industries on resolving disputes related to all intellectual property rights, including copyright, trade marks, design rights, patents, database rights and anti-counterfeiting and customs measures. We work with you closely in building a clear understanding of the intricacies of your business and the industry you operate in. We can then provide you with tailored, practical, and innovative solutions which defend or enforce your rights and align with your wider commercial strategy. We pride ourselves on developing lasting working relationships with our clients, often protecting their intellectual property rights through the entire lifecycle of the business.
Our team has the expertise to conduct disputes through the courts in the UK and EU. We have a distinguished track record of successfully managing disputes in both IPEC (Intellectual Property Enterprise Court) and the High Court. We can also assist with alternative dispute resolution including mediation, expert determination, or arbitration. We are at all times focussed on achieving a solution that will enable you to continue with your business as quickly and on the best achievable terms possible.
