Client Testimonial

“I would highly recommend Briffa, and Alex Fewtrell specifically who was so helpful from start to finish. Being aware that this was my first time registering a design and not being aware of the process, Alex provided me with all of the information required and was always ready to answer any questions I had, and in a timely manner. A pleasure to deal with!”

– Emma Nibhrian, IP Services Client

How Can We Help?

Our legal services for the baby and child sector include:

Trade Marks

Servicing the baby and child industry requires a large amount of trust to be fostered between consumers and your brand. This trust is represented in the eyes of your customers through things like you brand name, logo, packaging and even advertising material.

Trade mark registration offers protection for all assets relating to your brands identity, preventing others from misusing your trade marked assets and keeping your reputation safe and secure.

Our expert team of lawyers can advise you on your brand strategy and make sure it’s registered and properly protected anywhere in the world.

Commercial Contracts

Getting your products into the hands and homes of your customers requires a number of parties working cohesively together. Just as your business provides value to families, your stakeholders such as suppliers, manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors, must also work together as a one unit.

Holding all of these separate processes together are a set of agreements covering any number of aspects of your relationship, such as delivery times, pricing and IP ownership amongst many more. Having thorough and fair contracts in place can hold other parties to account when needed and protect you and your rights.

Whether it’s a freelancer, manufacturing, distribution, consumer sales or wholesale agreement, we offer fixed fees to draft, review and negotiate commercial contracts and documents.

Confidential Information

The baby and child sector is an extremely competitive multi-billion pound industry in the UK alone. So a competitive edge can often come from small developments, from a new manufacturing process to an altered recipe, these pieces of information are crucial to ensuring your business remains competitive and sustainable.

Keeping this knowledge confidential can be the difference between fortune and failure. It is therefore essential that the information your business has acquired over time remains the property of your organisation, much like its logo and name.

whether it be inside knowledge of the industry, supply chains or contacts, these are all valuable pieces of information to your business. We can help you keep your knowledge secret with non-disclosure agreements and advice on confidentiality.


The bustling baby and child sector relies on eye catching design to appeal to consumers. And once an engaging design hits the market, there is the risk of others trying to profit from somebody else’s hard work by copying their designs.

Whilst designs do not need to be registered in order to be afforded some legal protection, registering your designs offers comprehensive and cost-effective protection for your original creation. We can help you secure registered rights and build your intellectual property portfolio.

We advise on both registered and unregistered design rights. We can also advise on a worldwide design protection strategy.


An invention that provides real value to the baby and child industry can be worth a lot of money, so make sure to protect your original creations with a patent. This protects you from misuse of your product such as importing or exporting without your permission and from third parties copying and selling your patented invention.

From complex software code to new production processes, our expert patent solicitors and associate patent attorneys can advise you on patent protection and guide you through the application process.
