Graphic Design and Branding Services

In a world where you need to grab a consumer’s attention in split seconds the work of the graphic designer is more important than ever before. A key concern to graphic design businesses is how to ensure appropriate remuneration for work that could become iconic and invaluable to the clients they work with. Far too often, designers complain about receiving very little for work that has contributed significantly to their clients’ success. The right contract offers protection from underpayment and the devaluing of your work — that’s where we come in.
The secret of profitable work as a graphic designer is making sure you have the right contracts in place with your clients to monetise your intellectual property rights. The outright transfer of all copyright of a work attracts a far higher price than limited use in a specified territory. Negotiating a fair price is the key to success and fortunately, Briffa can help. For more information on the above and to arrange a free meeting with one of our solicitors, please call +44 (0)20 7288 6003 or fill out our contact form below.

Legal Services for Graphic Design & Branding Agencies

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.

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

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.

We work with many graphic design businesses to carry out basic clearance checks on new name or logo ideas you are presenting to clients. Our clearance service makes the process to sign-off smooth and enhances your reputation as a trusted agency.
