Businesses, government and other public sector organisations are becoming increasingly aware of the value of their intellectual property. For many organisations, it would not be possible to operate if these valuable assets were not properly protected and exploited. This is a particularly diverse area of practice and our clients come from all spheres; we have advised publishers, television companies, NHS Trusts, government agencies and many others.
Our intellectual property specialists advise on matters ranging from trade mark registration and ownership of software rights to patent infringement, domain name disputes and other forms of IP litigation.
Our experience in securing and protecting intellectual property rights is complemented by expertise in IP licensing, technology transfer and royalty agreements, including the creation of specialist and joint venture vehicles to exploit IP rights. We pride ourselves in bringing clarity and straightforward thinking to potentially complex and bewildering problems.
