Intellectual property

Intellectual property

Intellectual property may not show up on the balance sheet, but it is fundamental to a successful business. We recognise that intellectual property may be our clients' most valuable asset and requires protection in a world where its infringement may be the click of a button away.

Advising digital and deep tech businesses requires a detailed knowledge of IP and IT law and an understanding of the risk vs reward and cost and knowledge of protection strategy. We take the time to understand our clients' business, and that enables us to provide advice on innovative legal protection. We have specialist knowledge and international experience in the cutting edge areas of intellectual property to ensure that the advice we give is the best advice for our clients' needs.

Our advice includes:

  • Brand protection.
  • Trade marks.
  • Copyright.
  • Plant varieties.
  • Close liaison with patent attorneys.
  • Domain names.
  • Safeguarding confidential information.
  • Licensing.
  • Advertising and marketing law including social media and influencer arrangements
  • Employment issues and restraints of trade.
  • Cyberlaw, security and general internet advice.
  • Website design, collaboration, hosting and linking agreements.

Our objective is to maximise the value of our clients' information technology and intellectual property through proactive legal protection and management.
