A brand can make a business and a person.  It's the first thing you notice and the last thing you remember.  Whether it's online or offline we understand the value your brand has to you.

We work hard to protect and manage your brand and your trade marks to ensure that their commercial value is not tarnished or reduced in any way.

Our Brand Protection team has the expertise to steer your brand through the life cycle from inception of your brand and registration of your trade marks to managing your portfolio, protecting your brand against infringement and helping you to exploit your brand's true potential, we will help you through every step of the way.

We work with our clients on strategies to protect and exploit brands (including trade mark registration, licensing and franchising), while helping you to protect your trade mark and brand against infringement and passing off claims.

We also provide anti-counterfeiting and anti-piracy support, and manage infringement claims, including through litigation, mediation and settlement.

And we understand that in some industries reputation is everything, which is why we are also experts in libel, defamation and reputation protection and management.
