"Serle Court’s members offer genuine expertise across a broad range of chancery and commercial disciplines"

Intellectual Property

Several members of Chambers provide advice and advocacy services in intellectual property matters, involving, for example, trade marks and passing-off, copyright and designs, and patents and confidential information. Members have also acted in cases concerning performance rights, moral rights, data protection issues, database rights, geographical indications, Freedom of Information requests, information technology disputes, and entertainment and media issues.

Chambers has a particularly strong reputation in trademark registration matters, with great experience before both the national and European tribunals and courts, including the Trade Mark Registry, the Appointed Person, the General Court and Court of Justice of the European Union.

Chambers also has extensive experience in copyright matters, in particular, those relating to the music and entertainment industries. Chambers has acted for many artists, record and film companies, agents and publishers. In addition, members of chambers have undertaken advisory work in international, European and comparative copyright law, including assisting in legislative drafting and representations to governmental departments and international organisations.

Michael Edenborough QC is the consultant Editor of "Butterworths Intellectual Property Law Handbook" - 15th edition October 2021, 14th edition September 2019, 13th edition August 2017.  The new 15th edition has been fully revised and updated to reflect recent key developments in this area, including the UK's exit from the European Union. 

“This book provides an invaluable single source collection of UK primary and secondary legislation relating to property law in one manageable volume.” LexisNexis Butterworths.

Given the broad chancery / commercial make-up of Chambers, members are well placed to advise on the interaction of intellectual property issues with such areas as company law, insolvency procedures, tax disputes, trusts, jurisdictional matters, and private international concerns.
