Intellectual Property

Whether you are looking to protect your intellectual property or to exploit it, our experienced corporate lawyers are able to help.

The protection of ideas and products is vital for every business. We are experienced in applying for trademarks and design rights in the UK, across Europe and worldwide – so we can guide you through every step of the process.

We also have considerable experience in drafting and negotiating licensing agreements whether in respect of trade marks, patents or other technology and know-how. This includes drafting software development and licensing agreements.

Here are some examples of recent matters that we have been involved in:

  • Negotiating and drafting a multi million pound long term licence agreement allowing a third party to manufacture branded equipment under licence from our client;
  • Licensing of patented technology in the renewable energy sector to a third party.
