Trade Marks 

A trade mark is a sign which can distinguish your goods and services from those of your competitors (you may refer to your trade mark as your "brand"). 

Trade marks can be, for example, words, logos or a combination of both.

We can register your marks in the UK, Community, and around the world.

Our services

We offer the following services in the UK and the Community: 

  • Trade Mark Clearance – we check registers to see if your mark is available for use and registration
  • Pre-filing advice – we can help you decide which marks are best to register and how to obtain maximum protection for your mark
  • Filing the application – we prepare and file your trade mark application
  • Portfolio management – we offer post-filing strategic advice
  • Infringements & oppositions – we advise and assist you in relation to infringements and attacks to your mark
  • Watching Service – we can help you enforce your trademarks
  • Dealing with your registration – drafting license agreements, assignments, and cease and desist letters 


We can register your designs in the UK and in the EU. A registered design gives you the exclusive right to use the design in these territories.  A registered design protects the overall visual appearance of a product (or part of a product). A design can be a logo, a get-up, the shape of a bottle or a chair, a skirt, dress or a shoe. 

In the UK & Community, our  trade mark specialists possess specialist knowledge to help you protect and enforce your design rights. We can advise you on how best to protect your drawings and articles. 

  • Pre-filing advice – we advise you on the most suitable form of intellectual property right to use to protect your creativity
  • Filing the application – we prepare and file your design applications and we deal with objections from the Registry
  • Post-filing advice –  we help you enforce your rights 
  • Dealing with your registration – drafting license agreements, assignments, undertakings and cease and desist letters


If you have invented an original literary, dramatic, musical or artistic work we can give you tailored and specialist advice on how to protect it.  We will advise you on all aspects of copyright law, from the subject matter for protection, ownership, licensing and assignments, duration of protection and infringement issues. 

A growing part of our business is the clearance of copyright rights for use. Let’s say, for example, that  you want to use someone else’s music as background music in your gallery, and you would like to know whether you can do this, and what steps need to be taken before you can proceed. We will help you identify the rights which need to be cleared, and contact the owner of those rights on your behalf and obtain their permission to use the work. We can also advise you during negotiations with third parties.
