Trade Mark and Design Services
21 November 2017
The IP, brand, trade mark and portfolio management team at Lewis Silkin comprises more than 50 lawyers and trade mark attorneys along with specialist support personnel.
It continues to be acknowledged by clients and leading legal directories for its expertise in many IP-related fields including trade marks, advertising, IP disputes, sports and IP-rich commercial work. The breadth of our knowledge enables us to view our client’s brand issues in a wider context.Unlike many law firms where trade mark and design searches and applications are subcontracted to trade mark or patent agents, this firm has remained a ‘one stop shop’. We believe it essential that our lawyers are familiar with every facet of law and practice relating to trade marks and are involved at each stage of the lifecycle of our clients’ brands, from checking the availability of names and securing trade mark registrations, to pursuing infringers and the provision of transactional advice on the disposal of a brand.
We act for businesses in a wide range of industries including marketing, retail, fashion, media, entertainment, sports, financial services, technology and leisure and are instructed by a number of clients solely on the basis of our trade mark and design expertise. We are retained by many overseas law firms to conduct trade mark and design work for their clients in the UK and Europe.
We are members of the International Trademark Association (“INTA”), the Global Advertising Lawyers Alliance (“GALA”), the Institute of Trade Mark Agents (“ITMA”), the British Brands Group and the European Sponsorship Association (“ESA”). Many members of the Department have post graduate qualifications in intellectual property law.
