Our Expertise

Myerson is a nationally recognised law firm with a large team of Intellectual Property solicitors.  Our Intellectual Property team is ranked by the prestigious Legal 500 law firm directory.  Therefore, you can be assured that you will receive the best quality advice and service offering. 

Your organisation’s most valuable assets are not necessarily physical – for example, they could be your brand, ideas, trade secrets, know-how, innovations or research and development.  It is important that these are protected from potential competitors so you control how you exploit them.  To do this, you will need the advice of a specialist lawyer to ensure legal recognition and enforcement of the ownership of your intellectual property rights.

The Intellectual Property Team at Myerson can:

  • Work with you to compile IP strategies that ensure your IP is protected.
  • Review your IP portfolio and discuss your requirements in detail with you.
  • Review your existing corporate structure to identify whether you would benefit from a reorganisation in order to protect and exploit your IP.
  • Review and discuss co-operation, partnership, research and development, employment and sub-contractor contracts.
  • Undertake IP due diligence exercises and advise on suitable warranty/indemnity cover and IP documents before a merger or acquisition is completed.
  • Liaise with trade mark and patent attorneys to get your trademarks, patents and design rights registered whether that it is in the UK, the EU or internationally.
  • Assist you with the registration and management of your trade mark portfolio.
  • Provide ongoing assistance to large corporate clients and individual entrepreneurs with all Intellectual Property requirements.
  • Assist with securing funding to develop innovations and concepts.
  • Assist with registration applications in respect of patents and design rights.
  • Work with you to protect and enforce your Intellectual Property rights.
  • Provide advice and assistance in handling infringement actions, passing-off claims and all other types of IP litigation.
