          Intellectual Property Litigation

          To achieve an advantage in an increasingly competitive global marketplace requires creativity and innovation secured through strategic and robust enforcement of intellectual property rights.

          Acting for household names, as well as fast-growth start-ups and disruptors, our genuine sector expertise sets us apart.

          Recent work includes advising on claims involving:

          Patent infringement, entitlement and validity
          Copycat packaging, new product development and design right
          Trade mark infringement, passing off and copyright infringement
          Cyber threats, including phishing, website cloning and fraud
          Reputation management and social media
          Sponsorship, naming rights and ambush marketing
