Our specialist team advises trademark, copyright and database rights holders and users, to manage, enforce, protect and exploit rights across a range of creative industries. The team has a specific focus on IP matters in the digital business, retail, automotive and life sciences sectors. From IP strategy, licensing, assignments and securitisation, through to mediation, arbitration and litigation of copyright and database rights, we are here to advise on the most appropriate and cost-effective brand protection strategies, as well as the enforcement and defence of your rights.
We act for a broad range of clients, from leading businesses to innovative start-ups, including newspaper publishers, cutting-edge games developers, price-comparison sites, retailers and internet service providers, helping them make the most of their brands and portfolios. We have particular experience in online content distribution, advising on new technologies and the liability and obligations of online intermediaries. As data has become ever more valuable to businesses, we can help navigate the complex legal rights accruing to the investment and those of the subjects of the data concerned.
This is an area where international-thinking is vital. The combination of having experts in the key jurisdictions with our enduring focus on digital technology has meant that our lawyers have truly helped shape the application of the law to digital rights.
