Overview

We deliver a complete range of services with experienced specialists in all aspects of IP helping our clients create, exploit and protect intellectual property throughout the whole life of a brand.

In trade mark filing we have a strategic ability to register and monitor trademarks anywhere in the world. Where appropriate, we work with handpicked, trusted advisors to ensure all rights are fully protected and commercially exploited at all times. Once valuable IP has been created it is a matter of protecting and growing it, domestically and internationally, through activities such as licensing and franchising.

Where we detect an infringement, we work swiftly and tenaciously to stop the breach and deliver a significant return on investment. Utilising our award winning Mishcon Tulip product, we have recovered in excess of $100m for our IP clients over the past ten years.
