Litigation

Our Expertise

Our Litigation specialists are both lawyers, and patent and trade mark attorneys, who understand both the complexities of the law and the complexities of the technology involved

Mathys & Squire handles litigious cases before the specialist and higher courts in the UK and the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court (IPEC), UK Trade Mark Registry and OHIM. Our successful track record shows that the best dispute resolution team combines the technical expertise of our Patent and Trademark Attorneys, along with specialist litigation legal skills of our solicitors. 

The combination of our solicitor Court skills with our technological expertise and client understanding provides an efficient and cost effective dispute resolution option. This is valuable for enterprises of all sizes. For SME’s it may be the only practicable option. For larger enterprises, it is a robust and cost-effective option.

We are keen on the appropriate use of alternative forms of dispute resolution, whether informal negotiation or recognised ADR formats such as mediation and arbitration. Members of the team have particular skills in this area and have settled numerous high value disputes.

With a view to the future, we will also have rights to represent clients at the new Unified Patent Court (UPC) in London, Munich and Paris, and already have team members with the necessary high level language skills.
