Intellectual Property

Intellectual Property

Our intellectual property team is well-known in the region, and also boasts an extensive national and international reputation for scrupulous attention to detail.

All businesses possess intellectual property, (IP), whether it's a brand, a special design, an invention or a trademark – and securing this valuable asset is a key factor in the future success of any commercial venture. Fortunately, the intellectual property team at Sloan Plumb Wood has the in-depth understanding of this complex area to keep your IP protected.

Experience in identifying IP issues and choosing the right course of action

Our intellectual property group has wide-ranging experience in many aspects of intellectual property, gained over more than 25 years. It advises on IP licensing, identifying actual and potential intellectual property assets, as well as planning strategies for protecting those assets in the event of such things as the sale and purchase of businesses, and the  enforcement of intellectual property rights via Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) or litigation.  

Serving clients from across the business sectors in the UK and beyond

Our clients include a wide range of UK-based and overseas businesses in high-technology fields such as 3G mobile communications, packaging, medical devices, manufacturing and web-based technology. When advising clients, our first objective is to clearly understand the nature and extent of a company's intellectual property assets and how these can be exploited to maximum benefit.

Established links with international experts covering all aspects of IP law

We have excellent relations with other professionals working in this field, including patent and trade mark attorneys. In a globalised world, intellectual property is inherently international in application and through associate law firms in many other jurisdictions we are able to offer our clients’ access to advice, wherever and whenever it is needed.

We can keep your intellectual property safe and react strongly to any infringement.
