Intellectual Property

Making the most of your intellectual property.

Copyright, Trademarks, Patents and Design Rights – people come into contact with multiple types of intellectual property on an almost daily basis. Many of these intangible assets are valuable, either financially or in terms of maintaining the reputation of your business, products or services, so it’s essential that they are recognised and used to the best advantage of your business.

For many individuals and businesses, intellectual property law protects more than just an idea or concept – it embodies genuine commercial assets. Even more, the way an organisation acquires, uses, licenses and promotes its intellectual property can become an integral part of that organisation’s culture, and can inform how it deals with customers, suppliers and even how it engages and retains staff. Intellectual property isn’t just about protection. Our unparalleled experience and expertise in open business models means that we can provide meaningful advice to businesses, not-for-profits and public sector bodies on how to ensure their intellectual property protection best aligns with their business aims, requirements and culture.

Our team of expert Intellectual Property solicitors have years of experience in helping clients protect, manage, and nurture, the intellectual property rights they have developed in the UK, throughout Europe and the rest of the world.
