Intellectual property

From market-leading advice on global intellectual property disputes, and guidance on how to safeguard and grow your brand, to navigating the complexities of drug discovery and development, Shoosmiths’ IP team can provide you with the very best advice to protect and enhance your intellectual assets.

Put simply, our work is broken down into five key areas, each with their own specific experts on hand to provide you with exceptional client service – and the results you demand.

  • Consumer brands
  • Technology and innovation
  • Life sciences
  • Universities and research organisations
  • Media and creative industries

Within these areas, we cover all intellectual property rights, including trademarks and passing off, patents, confidential information, copyright, designs and database rights and related regulatory issues.

Given the global nature of IP, we also frequently advise UK and overseas companies on cross border transactions and disputes as part of an international team of lawyers.
