Often, the protection of intangible assets is fundamental to the continued well-being of a company. In a global economy and with the pace of development of digital technology, the need to protect intellectual property such as technical know-how, copyright, trade marks and patents is greater than ever before.
To ensure the secure defence of your business against any potential threats, The Wilkes Partnership runs a dedicated intellectual property team dealing with both contentious and non-contentious intellectual property matters.
Our contentious team works closely with a small group of experienced counsel, a specialist team who can be called upon to provide immediate efficient professional assistance, with the knowledge and expertise to enforce your rights.
We have the capability to obtain immediate ex-parte injunctions to protect your business. We can advise on statutory offences which may bring the dispute within the confines of the criminal arena.
Our non-contentious team advise on the development and exploitation of your intellectual property and on acquiring licensed rights from third parties. This includes licence agreements, technology transfer and R & D projects.
We can help you:-
- copyright issues
- licence agreements
- protection of patents or design
- know-how and technology transfer
- computer software issues
- R & D agreements
- passing off or other trade mark issues
- infringement litigation
