Howes Percival Intellectual Property Team

Intellectual Property

Our lawyers are all experts in their chosen specialisms, but you need your advisers to be able to look beyond the specific deal or project to understand your business sector. That is why our lawyers immerse themselves in specific industry sectors, making sure that they understand your business as well as they do their own.

We are fully equipped to advise clients on IP protection, including the registration and exploitation of IP assets such as trade marks and design rights.  In addition, we handle an extensive caseload of IP litigation in the English courts as well as before the UK Intellectual Property Office and the equivalent European authorities.

Our IT expertise ranges from the drafting and negotiation of software development and maintenance agreements to advising clients on compliance with the new Cookie regime for websites and drafting appropriate website policies and statements.  In addition to providing commercial IT advice, we also advise clients in respect of IT-related disputes.
