Resolving Intellectual Property Disputes

Most businesses have intellectual property in their trading names, know-how and products. They have spent a lot of money and time in building brand and identity, so the last thing they want to see is a rival taking advantage of that by appropriating their creativity, skill and effort.

At Birkett Long, our intellectual property solicitors will help you protect and exploit your assets, but when things go wrong, we will guide you through the dispute process with clear, straightforward advice.

We know how important it is for you to have the appropriate and practical measures in place for the protection of your intellectual property.

  • Patent applications
