Our team follows Foot Anstey's progressive approach to legal services, working with innovative businesses to help them protect their valuable intellectual property.  Together with the firm’s Non-Contentious Intellectual Property team, our team provides a range of businesses from national and international brand owners to start-up companies or entrepreneurs with a full range of services.

Our goal is to help businesses and entrepreneurs with innovative ideas to help them make the most of those ideas, secrets, brands or products that give them a competitive edge, and to help them stop others taking advantage by bringing or strongly defending litigation.  Our overall objective is to avoid disputes escalating and to achieve the right resolution.

We look to achieve that goal in the way that works best for the client and we are approachable, responsive and always aim to speak the language of business, not law.

Our key areas of expertise include:

  • Confidentiality, trade secrets and know-how
  • Trade marks & designs
  • Copyright 
  • Database rights 
  • Unfair competition/Advertising 
  • Funding, international trade and export
