Over the last century we've been lucky enough to have played a part in protecting some of the world's most ground-breaking inventions and forward thinking brands and we're pretty confident we're one of the most ambitious, energetic, dedicated groups of intellectual property professionals you're likely to meet.
Providing sound strategic guidance from the moment of a brand’s inception, Bird & Bird is a prime destination for rights holders with global concerns. We can justly make the claim that few other international firms have our track record when it comes to the quality of our intellectual property experience.
We have one of the largest teams in the UK with over 75 lawyers and trade mark attorneys purely dedicated to intellectual property law.
We offer unmatched contentious and non-contentious capabilities in relation to all IP rights trade marks, patents, copyright and database rights, confidential information and data privacy. We advise on IP protection, enforcement, strategic management, valuation and monetisation of brand portfolios. Because of our broad remit our clients are an eclectic mix of the diverse and traditional.
Many of our lawyers are dual-qualified across a range of technical fields, this coupled with our experience working with some of the world's leading innovators, means we have a wealth of expertise in providing both strategic commercial advice and invaluable technical insight.
