Intellectual Property & IT
We provide cost effective advice on the registration, use and enforcement of the intellectual property of your business to ensure that your brand remains unique and protected.
Although there are limited actions available to owners of unregistered trademarks, namely under the common law action of “passing off”, a more cost effective solution is to register the trademark across the UK, Europe and possibly globally, as your commercial needs require. The position of a business is significantly stronger when a dispute arises out of a registered trade mark and so the costs of resolving the dispute are likely to be appreciably less.
We also provide strategic advice to established and developing companies on all matters of intellectual property including employers issues with regards to copyright, especially with the rapid expansion of social media.
