Your Intellectual Property (IP) can include some of your most valuable business assets – your ideas, technology, designs, names and reputation. We’ll help you protect, manage and make money from them.
To achieve this we have built up one of the largest dedicated IP teams in the Midlands.
We demand technical excellence of our lawyers and use it to deliver commercial success for our clients.
Our clients range from technology focused start-ups through SMEs, right up to large international groups. They ask us to help them exploit, protect and devise strategies for some of their most valuable assets - their ideas, technology, designs, names and reputation. They also ask us to help them defend themselves from claims made by competitors. They come from a range of sectors, including manufacturing, engineering, construction, energy, retail and life sciences. We are focused on using our legal expertise to deliver commercial results for them.
Whatever your business, we’ll focus on getting to know how you operate so that we can use our legal expertise to deliver the best commercial results for you. We are also keenly priced to ensure you get value for money.
If you operate abroad, we have a network of trusted overseas contacts who can service your needs in an increasingly globalised economy. This might involve coordinating multi-jurisdictional litigation, agreeing suitable trading relationships with suppliers in developing economies or advising on appropriate strategies for expanding a brand overseas.
Many members of our team have post graduate qualifications in IP. This is allied to many years of practical experience helping clients across the full spectrum of IP as it affects their many and varied businesses. This experience ranges from various forms of dispute resolution including litigation in all the major courts from mediation and arbitration, to licensing programs and strategic advice in relation to buying and selling businesses where IP is a key part of a transaction.
The 2012 edition of legal directory Legal 500 praises the team for its "breadth of service" and for providing advice that is "on the ball".
The 2012 issue of Chambers describes the team as a "standout participant in the IP marketplace having worked on a string of substantial engagements of late. Its lawyers are experienced across the full spectrum of IP matters, and are known for their particular expertise in relation to patents".
