INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

We advise regularly on a wide range of intellectual property matters including:

  • Copyright
  • Passing off
  • Trademarks
  • Domain name disputes
  • Image rights and endorsement
  • Database rights
  • Publishing rights including electronic rights
  • Protecting your brand

We act for individuals such as artists, musicians, authors, photographers and playwrights who wish to exploit and protect their own intellectual property rights. We also advise companies on the steps they can take to prevent their name and product or brand from coming under attack and to protect their corporate reputation, including obtaining injunctions to stop the infringement. We have advised on brand exploitation deals involving celebrities and prominent organisations.

Our media litigation team acts in high profile intellectual property disputes including copyright, passing off and trademark infringement often involving multi-jurisdictional issues. We represent our clients in alternative dispute resolution, in particular at mediations. We also bring and defend domain name complaints.

Contracts
We draft contracts involving intellectual property rights including copyright assignments and licenses, film, tv, publishing and merchandising agreements. We also advise on contractual disputes.
