Intellectual property

Our IP lawyers offer a full range of advice on intellectual property to help you to create, exploit and protect your brand – something we appreciate can be one of your most valuable business assets.

We provide a complete registration service, including preparing and submitting applications for trademarks, design rights, patents and domain names.

Intellectual property rights often form a key element of joint ventures and the sale and purchase of assets and businesses. We help to secure your interests in transactions of that nature through detailed due diligence and appropriate contractual safeguards.

We also draft, review and negotiate individual license agreements, franchise agreements and IP development and maintenance agreements for you where intellectual property forms a significant element of the transaction.
