Chambers UK

Our lawyers are experienced in all aspects of IP, having been involved in cases across a wide range of technologies and industries.



Consumer Goods


Powell Gilbert has considerable experience advising on IP disputes in this sector. Our work has included patent, design, trade mark, copyright and passing off actions in relation to washing powders, cosmetics, razor blades, shampoos, toothbrushes, batteries and many other consumer goods. We have particular expertise in dealing with parallel trade, counterfeit and lookalike issues.


It is common for IP rights owners to seek urgent relief in such disputes and we have therefore been involved in numerous interim injunction applications in relation to consumer goods, as well as applications for search orders and asset freezing orders.
