A market leading practice for the global Intellectual Property community, we provide advice across all aspects of the IP life cycle from brand creation and protection, to licensing and commercialisation and enforcement.

Intellectual property (IP) is arguably the most important asset that a business owns. The protection of intellectual property rights not only provides a solid foundation for a company's future development, but is also an effective defence against increasing competition in both local and international markets.

Our specialist IP team advises on the full range of contentious and non-contentious IP related matters, assisting clients with the protection, enforcement and exploitation of patents, trademarks, copyright, designs, know-how and trade secrets in the Middle East, the UK and around the world.

Our IP clients operate in a wide range of industries, and our ability to work alongside specialist Clyde & Co teams, with industry specific experience, can be critical when working with these clients.

We act for international brand owners (from strategy through to implementation) and have developed a substantial practice based on instructions from trade mark and patent attorney firms.
