Intellectual Property

    Seddons’ Intellectual Property team has an excellent reputation advising on all aspects of Intellectual Property Rights from creation, acquisition, licensing and sale to enforcement and defence to threats of infringement.
    Dispute Resolution

    We are well regarded for our work particularly in the TMT (technology, media and telecommunications) sector. This extends from advising clients who are building social media mobile “apps”, digital marketing agencies and businesses that provide information technology or telecommunication services. We work closely with our clients and at an early stage advise as to which intellectual property rights are being created and how these rights can be best protected.

    We have substantial experience in bringing and defending IP disputes relating to ownership and infringement of IP rights. We provide strategic advice in seeking pragmatic, swift and costs effective solutions.

    We understand the sectors (ranging from TMT to fashion) in which our clients operate.

    Our areas of expertise include:

    • Copyright and other ancillary rights

    • EU and UK first application trade mark registrations

    • International registrations of existing trade mark registrations

    • Design rights

    • Database rights

    • Trade Secrets and confidential information

    • Patents

    • Preparing and negotiating assignments and licences of intellectual property rights

    • IP litigation
