Intellectual Property

Protecting your brand and innovation can be vitally important.

Trade Marks, Copyright, Design Rights and Patents

We act on behalf of clients in registering trade marks in the UK or across the European Community, advise on copyright or design right issues and have access to specialist patent agents/attorneys.

Licence Agreements

We advise on all kinds of licensing agreements relating to intellectual property:

We have advised on licensing agreements relating to a well-known national brand of sauce being blended with handmade sausages and a recipe for pork products.

Confidentiality Agreements

Whenever you are dealing with another party in a commercial arrangement where you wish to divulge your intellectual property so the other party can consider its commercial value, it is vitally important that a confidentiality agreement sets out the terms of any disclosure and protects your intellectual property rights in the information disclosed.


Our Dispute Resolution team handles an impressive mix of commercial work and can fight to protect your intellectual property rights or defend you against allegations that you have infringed the rights of others.
