  • Overview

    Immeasurable damage can be caused by others stealing or copying brand names, inventions, designs, products, text, images, software source code, trade secrets and confidential information. Taking swift, decisive action in the event of an actual, or threatened infringement, is key to effective enforcement.

    Equally, if you are faced with a claim for alleged infringement of another business’ intellectual property rights, it is very important to act quickly to assess your options and the grounds for defending the claim.

    In either case you need up-to-date legal advice relating to intellectual property rights combined with a capacity to understand quickly the technical detail and the ability to react speedily and objectively. There is also a need to understand the wider commercial picture. These are the strengths which we bring to such situations.

    We have specialist expertise in copyright, design right, trade mark infringements and in passing off, domain name, trade secret, breach of confidence and other IT related disputes. We work closely with colleagues in our Corporate Commercial team both when they are advising on transactions, the exploitation of IP rights, and when we are putting into effect settlements of IP cases.
