Intellectual property claims

Our intellectual property claims team has been instructed to handle a number of the UK’s leading cases. And we’ve helped shape trade mark law in the UK and Europe.

With extensive experience assisting a premium client portfolio of global household names and luxury brands our vast client-bank includes major corporates, insurers, government and SMEs.

We’re used to working on high-stakes disputes, and have an excellent track record, that can mean taking cases to trial or settling them on favourable terms. We understand litigation risk and know how to manage incurred costs, whilst fighting your corner.

Our brand experts are regularly involved in big ticket litigation, including recently defending the ability of Wolverhampton Wanderers, a Premier League football club, to continue using its longstanding club badge, and a leading Court of Appeal case for London Taxi. Our formidable patent team is involved in a range of complex disputes concerning new technology.

Importantly, our track-record speaks for itself. We’re proud to be recognised as “a go-to firm for heavyweight IP matters by clients” and ranked by World Trademark Review, Managing Intellectual Property and IAM Patent 1000, as well as Chambers and Legal 500 directories.

As well as helping businesses with complex intellectual property claims, we are co-founders of an international network of independent law firms, Pangea Net, a non-exclusive network operating in 25 countries – and our reach extends well beyond that.
