Intellectual property

We pride ourselves in acting for clients for whom IP is an important and valuable part of their business. Our all-round experience means we can help clients protect, manage, enforce and exploit their IP. So whether you are looking to protect a new technical innovation, negotiate brand licences, sue a third party infringer or anything in between, we can help. We advise on the tensions between competition rules and IP to make sure you are on the right side of the law, while our tax specialists will ensure that your IP assets are managed efficiently.

Many of the world’s leading companies come to us for IP advice, whether that’s litigation to enforce their IP or defend them against third parties, freedom to operate or protecting their portfolio of brands. We always advise in the context of your business and our sector experience underpins that.

We regularly work with global companies to devise the most effective pan-European IP strategies, and with offices in the six key European jurisdictions we can act locally to help you implement, exploit and enforce IP rights wherever appropriate.
