Litigation

Successfully solving IP disputes for our clients  

In a world of ever-changing technology, there is a perception that defending and enforcing IP is more difficult than ever. We provide expert IP litigation support for our clients so that they secure their portfolio.

Our intellectual property litigation team is made up of patent and trade mark attorneys and solicitors who understand both the complexities of the law and the practical intricacies of the technologies in IP litigation disputes.

Importantly for clients, our litigation team works closely with our experienced patent and trade mark attorneys, who already have an in-depth understanding of our clients’ businesses and commercial objectives, as well as having technical knowledge which underpins their IP portfolios.

Our IP litigation services

The courts

We handle litigious cases before the specialist and higher courts in the UK, including the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court and the UK Intellectual Property Office.

Alternative dispute resolution

We have a strong track record of achieving success for our clients at trial, however, we are also committed to using alternative forms of dispute resolution, where appropriate. Our experience includes conducting informal negotiation and employing alternative dispute resolution (ADR) formats such as mediation and arbitration.

Patent litigation

Our litigation team has extensive experience and many years of dealing with a broad range of patent cases before the UK (in the High Court, the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court and the Court of Appeal), sometimes whilst managing parallel proceedings. Our patent litigation work covers a breadth of industries.

Trade mark litigation

Our litigation team has a wealth of experience in dealing with a broad range of trade mark cases before the UK and European courts, sometimes whilst managing parallel proceedings. We have an envious track-record of negotiating amicable settlements, often at an early stage, or during the course of proceedings. Our trade mark attorneys are experts at preparing coexistence agreements to formalise settlement terms.
