Trade marks, brands & designs

Brands are your public face and embody your reputation

Brands are your public face and embody your reputation. Which successful business does not have a reputation that it does not wish to preserve and promote?

In many cases, brands and reputation have been built up over many years, and are amongst a company’s most important assets.

Trade marks, and your goodwill help to differentiate your products and services from those of competitors, adding commercial value to what you sell and the business overall.

  • We can help you to protect your brand by enforcing your trade mark rights. This includes work in relation to online trading and can extend to “passing off”, “unfair competition” and disputes relating to domain names. We have represented clients in numerous cases involving infringement, revocation, invalidation, cancellation, opposition as well as “parallel import” and anti-counterfeiting actions
  • Businesses and individuals who have unique product designs will want to protect their exclusivity and uniqueness, and the commercial advantages that brings. UK & EU law provide quite a complex web of overlapping rights, and we have conducted many cases across a wide range of products from consumer goods to industrial items
  • We can help you to shape an overall strategy combining a number of actions, often extending into a number of other overseas jurisdictions. We have built up a network of overseas lawyers with whom we have worked on a variety of cases and can offer our clients a global service
