Intellectual Property

Adding value at every stage of your IP’s lifecycle

The value of your IP depends on how it is managed at every stage of its lifecycle. With one of the largest IP groups in London, we help owners of some of the world’s best-known rights create, protect and exploit their IP. This demands a complete range of IP-related services: trade mark and design portfolio management; franchising and licensing, both domestically and internationally; the ability to take on the role of strategic commercial advisor in pursuit of key business objectives; and handling IP infringements swiftly and tenaciously. We will not only put a stop to any breach, we will deliver significant ROI. Our award-winning Mishcon Tulip product has already recovered more than £150 million for our clients over the last 15 years.

We are also providing rights owners with advice on Brexit, and our own business has made preparations to address the possibility of there being a 'No Trade Deal Brexit' at the end of the Transition Period. Mishcon de Reya IP B.V. is our new trade mark practice based in The Netherlands. A wholly owned subsidiary of the parent firm, it is there to guarantee your continued representation on EU Trade Mark (EUTM) and Design matters with the EU Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) after the Transition Period ends.
