Overview

Brands and content are often valuable assets and maintaining a robust protection program is key.

We take a 360-degree perspective on brands and the issues faced by their owners. In combination with our strong tactical expertise, this enables our clients to succeed in the face of adversity.

We are trusted advisors to many corporate and individual clients in connection with their UK and international trade mark portfolios.

Where rights are infringed, we help our clients take swift and decisive action, making full use of their IP where necessary. We have deep expertise in trade mark, passing off and copyright litigation, as well as in reputation protection. Our recent work has included infringement proceedings before the UK courts and the CJEU.
