Brand Protection

Brands permeate the creative industries.  From businesses to individual projects and personalities, we assist our clients in every aspect of their protection.

From securing registrations to dealing with infringements, we help brand owners build appropriate portfolios of rights around the world and we manage these portfolios tenaciously. According to Legal 500, we’re “an excellent team that gives solid and commercially sensible advice”  (Legal 500, 2016).

Our team streamlines the filing and registration process. We also advise on where, when and how to seek protection most cost effectively. Our trade mark portfolio management service assists various household names with the protection of their brands around the world.
