Intellectual Property Lawyers

2nd January 2019

Intellectual property (IP) law concentrates on the ownership of ideas and inventions. In an extremely competitive, and increasingly technical, world, IP is an integral part of business and quite often is its most valuable asset.

IP is a highly specialised area of law and because of its complexities lawyers/solicitors tend to focus on one area. There are also specific qualifications available so these specialisms are recognised by professional bodies, for example the title Chartered Trade Mark Attorney is awarded by The Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys. This professional membership organisation represents their members and ensures they keep their professional development up to date. They also regulate the profession by delegating this to the Intellectual Property Regulation Board (IPReg).

There are various law firms in the UK that offer a full range of IP services and are able to advise on all of the following:

Trade Marks
• Patents
• Design Rights
• Trade Secrets
• Plant Varieties Protection
• Geographical Indications
• Maintenance of IP
IP licensing
• IP assignments
• IP audits
• IP litigation
• IP strategy
• Due diligence
• IP portfolio management
• General IP advice

Whilst others specialise in one or a selection of these.
