Intellectual Property

We provide both legal and practical commercial advice to our clients in the identification, protection, management and exploitation of their intellectual property. Our clients, from a wide variety of industries, find this particularly beneficial given recent developments in e-commerce, multi-media broadcasting, online publishing, and biotechnology.

We regularly advise clients on licensing and outsourcing issues, joint venture and strategic alliances and the merger and acquisition of technical companies. We have extensive experience in both traditional and relatively new industries, such as 3G telecommunications, on-line publishing and transgenic products.
