          Intellectual Property Litigation

          Ever competitive global markets call for constant investment in brands and product portfolios, making it critical to prevent third parties seeking to trade off your established market position and intellectual property. Competition also encourages companies to unrealistically seek to assert the scope of their IP rights.

          Our highly-regarded team of industry-recognised experts advises on disputes and litigation involving all 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
          Supply chain and parallel importing
          Comparative advertising
