Intellectual property is at the forefront of innovation, which means that IP disputes often involve cutting-edge legal developments. Our litigators are experienced in dealing with novel and complex legal issues, and have acted in leading cases which have shaped IP law in their jurisdictions.

We handle disputes in all forms of IP, whether through litigation in the national courts, mediation or arbitration. We also handle the opposition of patents and trade marks in the relevant community or national offices, and revocation and invalidity actions.

IP is never simply a domestic concern. Every IP strategy needs to take account of the major global markets. We have particular experience handling multinational IP disputes. Our international network means you have access to high-quality IP litigation advice wherever your rights are at stake. Our European teams have many years’ experience of handling IP disputes, whether national or in parallel across a number of jurisdictions.
