Maximising brand power forms the heart of commercial strategy for businesses in nearly every industry, whether major names or start-ups with big ambitions.
There have never been so many opportunities to seize, or threats to avoid, whether that’s registering trade marks, patents and designs, protecting your brand from unauthorised use by your competitors, developing online content deals, negotiating TV format rights, or clamping down on counterfeiting or cybersquatting activities.
We help clients ensure that their brand is actively managed and defended, from the inception of an idea through value analysis, global IP protection and exploitation, concept roll-out, commercialisation, dealing with disputes and beyond.
Consistently ranked as a top-tier law firm for our work in the brand sector, we have a long track-record helping some of the world’s biggest blue chips and SMEs build up their brand presence in their marketplace and make best use of their IP assets.
Our clients value the strength of our large, specialist team, as well as the depth of our sector insight in areas such as intellectual property, advertising & marketing, media & entertainment, retail, technology, sports, manufacturing and professional services.
