Intellectual property disputes

Our team understands that developing a business idea, a new technology or a brand can involve significant effort and investment over many years.

Intellectual Property Disputes

We know that providing legal protection to intellectual property and enforcing the legal rights created can be vital to safeguarding the value of your business. We understand the importance of acting quickly to protect these valuable assets and have extensive experience of undertaking enforcement proceedings in the UK and internationally.

Our team handles disputes arising from the enforcement, defence and validity of trade marks and other business names, domain names, copyright, design rights, patents and database rights. Our clients come from a wide range of industrial and commercial sectors including brewing, fashion and retail, agriculture, pet pharmaceuticals, media, publishing and e-commerce.

In addition to conducting litigation in the High Court and the Patents County Court (including applications for injunctions) the team has experience of conducting applications and oppositions in the appropriate registries/tribunals, through the domain name dispute resolution procedures, and of mediation and ADR generally.

Further information is available via our Intellectual Property pages.

The practice looks to recruit and positions experts in their particular fields, so you always have confidence that you are dealing with a person with the relevant skills and experience to resolve disputes.
