Protecting the exclusivity of your product, service or brand can be integral to preserving commercial value and strategy. That’s why some of the most preeminent and sophisticated businesses – as well as pioneering entrepreneurial organisations – have called upon us to advise on major UK and international trade mark-related issues.

Our experience in this area includes working with an internationally renowned university and a multinational consumer goods company that boasts a portfolio of the world’s best known household brands as well as a range of other brand-owners across various industries. We have advised on the enforcement of trade marks for goods and services ranging from sports drinks to perfumes, nappies, soap products, fireproof underwear and financial services. In addition, we continue to play a central role in shaping key legislation affecting designers in the enforcement of their trade marks.
