Brand protection

Our trade mark attorneys are highly experienced and offer a flexible commercial approach that is adapted to your needs and budget.

We work across all industries, for everyone from individuals and SMEs to large multinationals, helping with clearance, protection, maintenance and enforcement of various intellectual property rights. These include trade marks, designs, copyright and domains. We also work directly with clients and agents.

Our services cover portfolio management, advice on filing strategies, third party disputes, oppositions and settling disputes, and include:

  • Clearing a brand to check its availability for use and registration
  • Register and in-use (common law) searches
  • Advice on filing strategies
  • Dealing with issues on examination
  • Registration of trade mark

 

Once a trade mark is granted, we can provide you with infringement opinions, including handling and negotiating third party disputes, drafting settlement agreements and preparing cease and desist letters (letters before action).

We also offer general trade mark administration services, including:

  • Keeping details of your trade marks on record and advising you on their registration and renewal
  • Change of name or address
  • Transfer of trade mark ownership (assignment)

 It is important to clarify whether copyright in any creative work asscociated with your brand remains with its creator, their employer, a third party or you.
