Intellectual Property, IT and e-commerce

Working with you

Intellectual Property is an important for all businesses, from both protecting a brand, goodwill and reputation to exploiting your IP rights. We assist you with registering trade marks, licensing and selling IP rights, protecting IP rights (including legal proceedings for infringement) and domain name disputes. 

IT is a key part of modern business with IT infrastructures, service and support being key to fulfilling customer orders and service delivery. We advise on IT contracts, web-design contracts and software licensing.

E-commerce has changed the way our clients do business creating opportunities to market their goods and services to customers across the UK and abroad.
