We have one of the largest independent intellectual property groups in the UK, delivering a complete range of services to help our clients create, protect and exploit their IP throughout its life cycle, whether in the UK or globally.
We devise copyright protection strategies in relation to literary and artistic works (including software), sound recordings, film and TV, and our team of advisory and transactional lawyers assist clients in agreements for the licensing, sale, distribution and purchase of copyright material. We also assist with planning and financing the marketing of games, music rights in video games, data protection, age ratings and use of virtual currency in games.
We ensure that our clients have the widest scope of protection for their intellectual property, but are also prepared to quickly enforce it should it be infringed. For example, we regularly advise multi-national technology and software companies on copyright and trade mark infringement actions and ownership disputes.
