IP disputes arise quite frequently. TWM Solicitors has the expertise to assist clients who need to enforce their IP or defend a threatened legal action.
Many of our business, institutional and private clients own valuable IP rights. These may include patents, trade marks, domain names, designs or copyrights. It is essential that clients always enforce their IP rights against any parties that misappropriate them.
Our clients are sometimes on the receiving end of IP enforcement actions themselves. We can formulate the best defensive strategies and offer support in any settlement negotiations which may follow.
We cover all types of IP
Our team is highly skilled in handling contentious IP and can place you in the driving seat where you need to assert, defend or conserve your IP. Our expertise covers a wide range of IP matters including patent, copyright, design and trade mark disputes.
Trade mark and copyright actions often relate to infringements on the internet or in social media. Even if you have not registered any trade marks or designs, we can assist you with claims for “passing off” or breach of unregistered design right. Through our numerous connections with trusted overseas IP professionals, we can source advice and take action in other jurisdictions.
Specific actions where we can help concerning IP disputes include:
IP disputes are often avoidable at the outset if you have a good understanding of the IP you own and how you can enhance the scope of protection it offers.
It is usually difficult to predict the costs that may be incurred in any IP action, but we provide transparency on costs and agree estimates with you beforehand.
If you need assistance in relation to IP disputes, whether it is to enforce your IP or defend a threatened legal action, please contact Laurie Heizler, Partner in Business Law or David Hitchcock, Partner and Head of Dispute Resolution.
