Intellectual property is the lifeblood of any creative business or individual – particularly those in the media industry. The rights that are applicable to you, your brand and your work need to be carefully protected whether you are an aspiring artist or multi-national.

We can act quickly to ensure that your rights are not misused, damaged or unlawfully exploited by others. We will take action (including an urgent injunction where necessary) in relation to: copyright, design rights, trade-marks, image rights, database rights and domain names. We will advise you on the nature and term of these rights and the merits of taking action in any circumstances.
