Intellectual Property Services for Technology Firms

Airbnb is one of the world’s largest accommodation providers but owns no properties. Uber is one of the world’s largest taxi companies but owns no vehicles. Facebook is one of the world’s largest media owners but creates no user content. A substantial part of the value in these companies resides in their intellectual property assets.

We have been advising clients in the technology and software sectors for over 25 years, and technological solutions to our problems are more important now than ever before. Whether you’re a software start-up wanting to register your trade marks, a multinational gaming organisation looking to patent your AI algorithms or somewhere in-between, we recognise the importance of your intellectual property assets and offer a range of services to protect, commercialise and enforce your rights.

In a recent case our technology solicitors were successful securing a games developer the ownership of all IP rights for a recent commercial project, allowing them to protect this work through patents and trade marks, which they could monetise further through licensing on different platforms.

Client Testimonial

“I contacted Briffa, Intellectual Property and Information Technology Lawyers looking for legal advice on a few matters and I liaised with Raj Girn. I found him extremely professional, helpful and responsive. We had an initial phone chat, which was followed by a more detailed consultation. He patiently assisted me with all my questions and I was very impressed by how knowledgeable, clear and thorough he was. I would highly recommend his services.”

How Can We Help?

Our legal services for the technology industry include:

Trade Marks

In the technology industry your reputation is the key to making sure your cutting edge products are trusted and adopted by as many people as possible.

A trade mark gives you the exclusive right to use your brand in relation to what you do. 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.

Data Protection

Developing ground-breaking new products in often uncertain conditions, technology companies rely heavily on data to make the right call.

Since the introduction of GDPR the use and processing of personal data has been under the spotlight. With substantial fines for companies that breach the complex regulatory framework, you don’t want to find yourself at odds with data protection laws.

Our expert team can help you to navigate the legal landscape and ensure that you have the correct policies and procedures in place to keep your company and the data it handles GDPR compliant.


Copyright arises automatically on creation and keeps your work protected, but sometimes you may need a hand enforcing your rights.

Software code makes up a substantial percentage of copyright works. Our specialist copyright lawyers can advise on how to best monetise and license these works, as well as what to do if they are copied.

Confidential information

The competitive edge of your technology organisation is reliant on numerous people working harmoniously across several fields, whether it be coding and web development, researchers or logistics. These components are vital to your technology company’s success, so it is important that the sensitive information they handle is properly managed and kept secure.

To keep one of your most valuable assets safe we can help to protect your proprietary information with non-disclosure agreements and advice on confidentiality.


A patent can be one of the most powerful tools you have for keeping your inventions safe. From complex software code to technological advances, our expert patent solicitors and associate patent attorneys can advise you on patent protection and guide you through the application process.
