The IP team has always been best known for the support it provides to high growth technology start-ups, entrepreneurs and creative people, taking them from the early stages of their businesses through to becoming established and successful through the development and exploitation of their IP.

We act for an number of Universities and our expertise in this sector was recognised by our appointment this year to the national IP Rights Services Framework by North Eastern Universities Purchasing Consortium, which has over 400 member organisations

An increasing proportion of the team's work consists of contentious IP work and we have acted on a number of IP litigation cases in the past year.

We provide a full range of trade mark registration and portfolio management services and a large area of our practice concerns working with our larger clients on complex research and development, international technology licensing and collaboration deals involving the exploitation of their IP.
