Law Practice Specialising in UK and international Intellectual Property

Who are you?

Many general practice law firms lack the depth of experience and knowledge to service their clients’ IP requirements. We have good experience of user-friendly specialist IP support to firms in these circumstances.

We can help you with any of your clients’ IP requirements. For example, areas in which we can assist include:

  • Obtaining Trade Mark and Design registrations
  • Advice on specific IP provisions within larger contracts
  • IP warranties and indemnities
  • Due diligence on acquisitions of IP and the evaluation of IP rights
  • Corporate support on all IP issues
  • Disputes and advice on avoiding disputes
  • Urgent remedies such as injunctions or search and seize orders
  • Drafting and negotiating IP based contracts
  • The purchase, transfer and licensing of IP rights
  • IP issues arising out of company mergers, acquisitions and IPOs
  • The respective rights of directors, inventors and sub-contractors
  • Designing around third party rights
  • Criminal sanctions
  • International IP
  • Training

We will tailor our service to your specific needs. In particular:

  • We can work as part of your team, either in the background or on a more visible level
  • If you refer a client to us for a specific matter, there is no risk that we will try to poach the client for work outside the field of IP – we specialise only in IP work
  • We will consider flexible billing to tie in with your arrangements with the client
  • Within reason, we are prepared to travel without charge for travelling time to meet you or the client
  • We pride ourselves on controlling costs and delivering within budget
  • Our aim is to look after your client so it reflects well on you

If your IP team needs extra resource, we can help you. For example, we can assist you with:

  • Overflow work
  • Capacity problems resulting from maternity leave, long term sickness or sudden departures
  • Urgent court applications such as injunctions
  • Acting as a supervising solicitor for search and seize orders
  • International issues
  • Training
  • Conflicts of interest

We are user friendly and flexible; we will tailor our service to your specific needs.

For example, we are willing to work in the background without direct exposure to the client, where appropriate.

Equally, if you make a referral as a result of a conflict, there is no risk of us poaching the client for other areas of work; we specialise only in IP work.
