Intellectual Property

Several members of Chambers provide advice and advocacy services in intellectual property matters, involving, for example, trademarks 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.

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.
