Protecting creativity and brands is at the heart of what we do. This means we really get to know your products, brands and designs. From make-up case designs to industrial clamps we have a wide breadth of expertise in providing the best possible protection for your products and brands.
Our experienced trade marks team is known for its exceptional work with clients in a wide variety of sectors. With the value of IP within businesses potentially accounting for over 70 per cent of the value of your business, it is essential that you have a trusted and experienced team ensuring that the IP is well protected around the globe. It is also vitally important to prevent others from copying the look or appearance of your products and brands.
IP is particularly important within the creative industries as it can help you protect your brand, designs and artwork from potential copycats and infringers. Our team has extensive experience of registering and enforcing trade mark rights around the world. We also watch your competitors and quickly notify you of any infringements and issues which could potentially dilute your creativity ownership.
We operate globally and make best use of our extensive international network of leading attorneys in all countries with trade mark systems to give you the best possible service. We regularly attend hearings at the UKIPO and also represent directly before the German, Austrian and Swiss national offices through our attorneys based in our Munich office.
The day-to-day management of trade mark and intellectual property portfolios is something we do very well. We love to work alongside you and assist on the choice of new trade marks, conduct global searches to determine the availability of proposed marks and advise you on whether you will be able to register these and hence own the exclusive rights to use a particular brand.
We are fully aware that cost is a sensitive issue; the protection of creative works and brands is an area which lends itself very well to fixed costs. We can offer certainty of cost by fixing our fees; we’re accustomed to working within restricted budgets to maximise your protection across the globe.
