We specialise in the following areas:

  • Design rights – To protect a client’s design rights we can register designs which can protect the appearance or shape of a product. This provides legal protection to attractive or distinctive aesthetics encompassed in your design.

  • Trademarks – A Trademark is a recognisable word, slogan or logo used to distinguish the goods or services of a company from its competitors. By registering a Trademark, you can ensure that the Trademark is protected and recorded, making it easier to prove misuse of a Trademark in the future.

  • Copyrights – A copyright is a legal right that grants the creator of an original work exclusive rights to its use and distribution. It protects your work and stops others from using it without your permission. Although there is no need to register a copyright, potential disputes can arise as to who owns the copyright on products. Our intellectual property lawyers can advise on the documents necessary in order to prove ownership and compiling the right information to prevent later complications.

  • Patents – Keeping your new, inventive and innovative ideas confidential helps to protect the patentability of the product which should not be found in any other domain. This is crucially important if your business is dependent on the success of a particular product as it will protect the product from being copied by other businesses, thus giving you a competitive advantage in the market.

  • Information Technology Law – Information technology law provides the legal framework for collecting, storing and disseminating information in the global marketplace.

  • Notice and Takedown Procedure – Takedown Notices aim to ensure that online hosts expeditiously remove or disable access to illegal, defamatory or copyright infringing content that they host.
