Our Intellectual Property Service

“Intellectual property rights” is a phrase used to cover a variety of legal rights which can either arise automatically or be registered in respect of creative works, whether that’s a brand identity, trade mark, know-how or confidential information or artistic/dramatic works. 

These intellectual property assets must be protected from potential competitors, so you control how you exploit them. To do this, you will need the advice of specialist intellectual property lawyers to ensure legal recognition and enforcement of the ownership of your IP rights. 

Our Intellectual Property Lawyers can advise on all aspects of intellectual property law, such as registering, protecting, and exploiting your IP, putting you in control of how your intellectual property is used. 

We welcome the opportunity to review your IP portfolio and discuss your requirements in detail. Our IP lawyers will work with you to compile an intellectual property strategy to protect your IP. 

Our Intellectual Property solicitors can help with the following matters:
