What we have done

"...their network of foreign lawyers is really impressive ..."

We have advised on a broad range of intellectual property issues involving trade marks, designs, copyright, database rights, patents and plant variety rights.

We have drafted and negotiated a wide range of commercial agreements from those relating to research and development to clinical trials, drug manufacturing and licensing to merchandising and sponsorship. We have helped clients review and develop their IP strategies, helping them to protect their IP in the UK and overseas and have worked with others to resolve IP disputes quickly and efficiently, minimising costs and disruption to business wherever possible.

For confidentiality reasons we are not able to list the names of our clients here but we have prepared a few case studies to indicate the broad range of issues on which we have recently advised. Click here to read them.
