Are you looking for advice on intellectual property and trademarks? We can help with our expert knowledge on all aspects of trademarks and trademark law.

Intellectual property rights have become an even more contentious issue in the modern digital world. Protecting your intellectual property, including any trademarks you own, is essential to maintain the integrity of your business. We can help with a range of legal services that ensure no-one breaches your intellectual property rights.

Protecting your Intellectual Property

Once your trademark has been registered, it’s important to ensure that no-one is breaching your rights by using your trademark. This may be either accidental or intentionally, but if there is unauthorised use of your intellectual property, you are entitled to ask them to stop. Having the power of a legal team on your side can be sufficient to prevent ongoing use. Even if not, we have a range of resources we can draw on – including litigation – to protect your intellectual property.

You can find out more about different types of intellectual property by checking out the section we have which breaks down the law and the different types of help we can offer for intellectual property.

Get in touch with us today if you believe that someone may have breached your intellectual property, or you’d like assistance creating your own trademark.

We successfully settled a claim on behalf of a tech client regarding overlapping trade marks against one of the largest telecommunications companies in the UK

We have settled over 200 trade mark claims and disputes, shielding our clients from the hassle of prolonged court proceedings and saving them millions

Partner Led

Unlike many law firms when we say partner or barrister led, we mean partner or barrister led. When clients work with us, they get constant access to the lead on their instruction. Yes, we have a team of solicitors and juniors for some of the groundwork and necessary research required by our clients, but this is when it makes financial sense to the client for us to do this. We provide constant contact at no extra cost as part of our service as most of our lawyers have their own business, so they know first-hand how important having a proactive, responsible and trusted partner on their side can be. And also how to work to a financial budget, and the way that legal decisions impact the wider organisation, which often requires balancing risks and competing interests.

Proactive Contact

Many ask us ‘what’s different about you?’ and we like to reply, ‘because we go the extra mile’. We see our work as building and maintaining good business relationships rather than just earning fees. How we do this is by keeping in constant contact with our clients and intermediaries. From pre to post instruction we ensure that our clients are informed of all legal issues that may impact their business and therefore lives. That is why we provide daily or weekly updates to ALL of our clients whether there is anything to tell them or not (we don’t charge for this we just see it as part of our service). We like our clients to rest peacefully knowing that when we are instructed, and we say ‘we will take it from here’ they know we mean it.

City quality, outer City fees

The world is changing, and many individuals are realising that lifestyle is as vital to them as is income. We are the lucky ones who can hand pick lawyers who can provide the best quality advice but at outer city costs. Our offices are in North West London which may not be the most salubrious in the market but at the same time this allows us to charge our clients for what they pay for, our advice NOT our office space.

ALL our lawyers have previously worked in large city-based law firms and continue to practise and offer  the same high level service  they provided to clients in the City but without the pressure and demands often dictated by City law firm. This allows us to be competitive on our fees without compromising our service.

All in all, our clients win, which is the way we like it.

Our knowledge and resources are yours

All our clients benefit from the same high level of care and attention whether the instruction is big or small. At the outset of each matter, we discuss the entire process with our clients, including the costs, potential outcomes and issues associated. This is to ensure clients are fully aware, knowledgeable and are in control always. Supporting and ensuring we provide the highest level of services, we offer our constant contact process with the partner or barrister leading  your file, a document log in for matters which are for larger and more complicated instructions and on-going support post transaction should our clients require it. Our aim is not just to get the work done, but to make our clients’ lives easier as we do it, which is why we ensure that our clients have regular access to the resources they need from us.
