Intellectual Property goes to the heart of our clients’ freedom to operate and impacts market share in their chosen fields. Protecting your own rights and steering clear of other peoples’ is not an easy task but can be a vital factor in success.
Enforcement of IP can seem expensive, but we help our clients identify what is really at stake in comparison. The UK IP courts have moved a long way in recent years to provide a choice of options to users that can mitigate cost burdens. From cost capping, to limiting the extent of evidential obligations, our specialists can guide you through the options to help you make the right choice.
At other times you may be able to exploit your IP rights by putting in place suitable licensing arrangements. We have a long track record of working for universities and other commercial clients on the broad range of contractual options available to them to exploit their IP.
