For media companies, a brand is often the most valuable asset of a business. A brand distinguishes a business from its competitors and is worth investing in and protecting. The value of a brand can be enhanced through a considered and effective protection, exploitation and enforcement strategy that reflects the commercial objectives of the company.

We invest time in your business to ensure that we appreciate the commercial framework within which your brands exist. We will conduct an audit of your existing registrations and applications and, in consultation with you, identify any areas where your existing protection is inadequate or unnecessary and correct this. This means we can then guarantee that the appropriate protection is in place to maintain and enhance the value of your brand.

We provide a commercial and proactive approach to all aspects of trade mark clearance, protection, enforcement and exploitation. We provide a full range of trade mark and design-related services and can operate in every jurisdiction necessary. Our services include clearance, protection, enforcement and exploitation.

We act for many leading household names in the media field, helping them to protect, defend and exploit their brands. We also manage some of the largest portfolios in Europe so you can be reassured that we have the expertise and capacity to commit the resources required to providing a high-quality proactive portfolio management service.

We have an unrivalled client base with many client relationships that have endured for years. We conduct complex cases before all the UK and EU tribunals, and currently have cases before the UK IPO, the OHIM, the High Court in London, the European Court of Justice and the courts of various countries, as we manage trade mark disputes in other jurisdictions.
