Our approach is commercial, innovative and strategically focused on creating, exploiting and enforcing your IP portfolio. We are recognised for our skill in putting together complex agreements, designed to prevent disputes and present opportunities for growth, as well as acting decisively and quickly in pursuing litigation relating to the infringement of IP. We advise companies on the steps that they should take to reduce the risk of litigation.
We act for a wide range of IP-rich companies. We have specialists who focus on areas such as industrial manufacturing, pharmaceuticals and healthcare, cutting-edge technologies, leisure, hospitality and food and drinks manufacturing.
Whether you are looking to expand your reach by licensing your IP to a third party; generating new, or productising existing, innovations through R&D; targeting a new customer base through a strategic partnership or JV; entering into a new franchise; increasing the visibility of your brand through targeted sponsorship arrangements; raising finance against your IP, or looking to mitigate the copycat and infringement risks that have arisen as your brand has grown; we are on hand to help you protect and derive the most from your copyright, trademarks and designs, patents, databases, domain names and other forms of IP.
The UK has a tried and tested, world-renowned regime for protecting IP which is attractive to investors when combined with the support of research, development and innovation through measures such as the patent box tax relief. With experts and connections across a number of jurisdictions, we can offer a holistic approach to the way we deliver services.
