From punk to pumps, our dedicated team deals with all of the intellectual property issues (and the majority of the contractual issues) which a fashion brand might encounter.

Our services include:

Trade Marks

Your brand is your identity, a sign of quality and usually a major driving force behind a consumer purchase. We can advise you on your brand strategy and make sure it’s registered and properly protected anywhere in the world.

Commercial Contracts

Agreements are key tools in holding your other parties to account and protecting yourself and your rights. Whether freelancer, manufacturing, distribution, consumer sales or wholesale agreement, we offer fixed fees to draft, review and negotiate documents.


The cost of legal action often prohibits rights owners from being able to enforce their rights. Ask us about our DesignProtect insurance, which gives you a fighting fund to pursue infringers and protect your designs.


Are the style, shape, surface decoration and pattern of your designs properly protected?  Briffa advise on both registered and unregistered design protection and will advise on a worldwide design protection strategy.


Copyright arises with artistic craftsmanship, as well as design sketches, logos and website layouts. We can advise on how to best protect these assets and what to do if you are copied.

Confidential Information

Inside knowledge of the industry, supply chains and contacts are all valuable information to your business.  We can help you keep your knowledge secret with non-disclosure agreements and advice on confidentiality.


Fashion pushes the boundaries of innovation. Perhaps you have an idea for wearable technology or a new fabric. If so, we can advise you on patent protection and guide you through the application process with our expert patent attorneys.
