Intellectual Property

A business’s intellectual property is often its most valuable asset. It is essential that such an asset is protected and properly exploited for the benefit of the business.  Our lawyers have experience in all aspects of intellectual property protection and exploitation, chiefly in the fields of trademarks, design right and copyright and can assist with advice on registration and maximising the value of IP including licensing.

Technology notoriously changes faster than the law and it is increasingly important for clients to protect themselves commercially in their use of technology. Our team has great expertise in drafting and negotiating technology contracts for clients in the digital sector, as well as expertise in data protection/privacy and the regulatory landscape affecting online content.
