Protecting the lifeblood of your business

‘If your intellectual property is compromised, you need advice from intellectual property solicitors who can move to a speedy and successful conclusion’

Your products or services are unique and help you stand out from the competition. In the modern digital world, differentiating yourself and protecting your assets are absolutely essential. As leading intellectual property solicitors, we can help you ring-fence what’s important at home and abroad.

Experts in intellectual property matters

We can work with you to identify your intellectual property, the best way to protect it, and how to get value from it.

  • Creating tailor-made protection
    We can work closely with you to assess what is vital to protect and find the most practical way to do it. We’ll take the time to understand your priorities and use our knowledge of the sector to provide a sensible and cost-effective solution.
  • Putting a licence in place
    Although a successful licensing deal can make good business sense, it’s vital that you make sure the contract manages your risks. We can make sure the contract accurately reflects the deal you’ve agreed on and gives you the right protection.
  • Intellectual property dispute resolution
    If your intellectual property is under threat, we can help you understand where you stand and consider your options. We can tailor a solution to fit your business, whether that be court action, mediation or settlement. We know you want the minimum of disruption to the business, and our specialists in intellectual property dispute resolution will look to resolve the matter in the best way possible.
  • Expert intellectual property solicitors
    We currently work with trade mark owners to manage their portfolios, with media businesses to maximise their returns on their rights, and with IT and tech businesses on licensing their software and services. Whatever your business and your situation, we can help.
