Protect

IP is a valuable asset that needs to be protected.  It can relate to a brand, invention, design or other kind of creation, and it can be legally owned.  We work with clients at an early stage to understand their strategy and to assess the value of protection.  Implementing the right IP strategy can mean the difference between commercial success and failure.

Exploit

We understand the commercial value of an IP portfolio and guide our clients on how they can use this asset to benefit your business.  Whether this is through licensing, a successful SPC negotiation or the value of a brand, we have the expertise to evaluate and identify the best commercial outcome for their organisation.

Enforce

We adopt a commercial approach to the resolution of conflicts and disputes, preferring to pursue negotiated solutions that meet our clients’ needs. If this route fails, we will pursue formal procedures to challenge or enforce rights.  We understand the importance of our clients IP and will do everything we can to fight to protect it.

LARGE
CORPORATES
