Intellectual Property / Information Technology

Creatives and innovators understand how important it is to protect their ideas. From a blueprint for new technology to a work of art, realising the potential of your intellectual property can only be done when it is protected and exploited intelligently.  So, how will we work with you to maximise the value of your intellectual property?

Over the last 50 years providing services in the protection of intellectual property we have worked with many clients from diverse sectors and we will bring all of this experience to bear in our work for you.  We have developed a successful methodology for the assessment of your requirements, the proposal of a strategy and reporting on progress.  Our specialisations include:-

  • Trademark and design registration and renewal
  • Copyright and database rights
  • Confidentiality agreements

What we have done for others

Our work in intellectual property spans sectors as diverse as national and international distribution, franchise and license agreements for retail, manufacturing, professional services and sporting bodies. Our portfolio of successful cases include trademark and design registration for national and international clients.

We have had significant successes in prosecution and defence of intellectual property infringement, including breach of copyright, breach of trademark, passing-off and patent infringement of European Patent.
