Intellectual Property Lawyers

In today’s knowledge economy, a large part of the value of your business is based on intangible assets and goodwill. Your intellectual property plays a key role in obtaining a competitive advantage. A cohesive IP strategy, including both commercialisation and enforcement, will ensure you get maximum value from your portfolio.

This industry-specific approach can help you realise your commercial goals.

The right brands will win the hearts and minds of your customers. The right patents will prevent others exploiting your ideas or provide a substantial barrier to market access. Copyright, know-how and designs also play a vital role. Legal discussions might arise concerning trade names, advertisements, slavish imitation and unauthorized publications.

This means you get in-depth industry knowledge as well as legal expertise for the protection of your IP. If you are involved in a dispute - concerning infringement of a copyright for example - we can guide you through the litigation process.
