Food & Drink Industry Specific Services

Briffa has been advising clients in the food and drink industry on a wide range of legal issues for over twenty-five years. From pop-up to PLC, micro-brewery to Michelin-star, no matter the size or structure of your organisation, our team will expertly deal with all of the intellectual property issues, and the majority of contractual issues, that your brand encounters.
It’s worth remembering that IP doesn’t just protect the product itself, food and drink brands can live and die by the quality of their packaging. If this fails, the product is ruined (and is potentially harmful), but with the right design, your product can travel from packer to plate without any compromise on taste. It’s vital, then, to protect new designs and enter into robust contracts with your suppliers.

This industry, possibly more so than others, faces a number of challenges ahead. Perhaps most significant is the issue of Brexit. Europe’s 743 million consumers are within easy reach of the UK, thanks to its geographic location and strong supply and distribution infrastructure, but brands need to prepare for the change in the political landscape and the potential impact on their businesses. Our specialist solicitors can advise on what steps to take to protect your IP in the coming years and expand into new territories

Legal Services for Food & Drink Brands

Briffa’s 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 agreements, 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.

Registered designs offer comprehensive and cost-effective protection for your original creations. We can help secure registered rights and build your intellectual property portfolio.

Copyright arises with artistic craftsmanship as well as design sketches, illustrations, text, 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.
