The courts

Our expertise

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

We have particular expertise in conducting patent and trade mark litigation in the IPEC, where we frequently take advantage of the IPEC’s streamlined proceedings, reduced expenses and accessibility for our clients. Our experience of conducting litigation at the IPEC means that, where appropriate, we are best placed to ensure that our clients achieve their objectives without having to resort to the more costly and prolonged nature of proceedings in the High Court. We are proud to be regarded by our clients as the first port of call for IPEC litigation, especially in relation to trade marks, designs and copyright, as the vast majority of disputes in these areas are heard in the IPEC.

Our successful track record shows that the best dispute resolution team combines the deep technical expertise of patent and trade mark attorneys, along with the specialist litigation skills of solicitors.
