Intellectual Property

Whether your Intellectual Property takes the form of your brand, your product or your idea – all are valuable to your business and at risk if not protected.

Our Intellectual Property Team can advise you on how to approach your intellectual property holistically, so that your trademarks, designs, copyright issues can be protected as part of a coordinated effort and your brand message delivered consistently and securely.

As well as taking action to protect your ownership of intellectual property rights, we can also advise you on how best to exploit these rights so as to maximise the commercial benefit flowing to your business from the use of the rights by others. We can help you formulate terms for licensing the use of trademarks, software and other digital content, design rights and any other rights which you wish your agents, distributors or other collaborators to make use of for the benefit of their business and yours. We can prepare the necessary licence agreements, and advise you on the registration of these agreements where necessary.

We can also help you with disputes over infringement of trademarks, copyrights and designs. Finally, with the world going online, we can help you with domain name and website issues should you feel someone is trying to trade off your name or copy your Intellectual Property.
