Frequently Asked Questions

What are intellectual property rights?

Intellectual property rights are legal protections for creations of the mind, including artistic, literary and musical works, designs, inventions, and business assets, like brand names and logos. There are several types of rights, such as trade marks, copyright, and patents. A rights owner can use their IP as they wish, and they’re protected against others using their IP without permission.

What does an IP lawyer do?

IP lawyers help individuals and businesses properly register, protect, and manage their IP assets through various non-contentious (e.g. registering a right) and contentious (e.g. fighting an infringement) work. This is vital for ensuring owners of IP maximise the commercial value of their work.

How are your fees structured?

We have a fixed-fee structure for our work. But before any fees, we’ll first schedule a consultation to learn more about your situation. The session is free and there are no obligations to use our services afterwards. We’ll provide clear and honest legal advice along with a fixed-fee quote for our work.

What should I do if someone is infringing my intellectual property rights?

If someone is infringing your intellectual property rights, you should collect as much evidence as you can. For example, screenshots, website links, and photos. Next, you should speak to a solicitor, who can advise whether you have grounds for a complaint and what steps to take next.
