A trade mark is a legal shield which underpins a successful brand. It identifies your business, and carries your unique message to the market. It can protect a domain name and prevent brand theft, and brand encroachment. It can become enormously valuable, both to your ongoing business and as an asset on the balance sheet.
We have a strong and successful team of trade mark professionals, who work with clients in all business sectors – including FMCG, media, financial services, IT, life sciences and engineering. Our team includes expert trade mark attorneys, solicitors and paralegals.
Our trade mark attorneys have much more to offer than superior legal skills. Their communication skills – the ability to listen, analyse, explain and persuade – are crucial for the best work. Their commercial skills allow them to understand your business and advise you in a long-term strategic way.
