Intellectual Property Lawyers

In today’s knowledge economy, a large part of the value of your business is based on intangible assets and goodwill. Your intellectual property plays a key role in obtaining a competitive advantage. A cohesive IP strategy, including both commercialisation and enforcement, will ensure you get maximum value from your portfolio. With 150 specialist lawyers in 34 countries, we understand your business needs and have worked with some of the best-known brands, from banks to tech companies, pharmaceuticals and FMCG companies. This industry-specific approach can help you realise your commercial goals.

The right brands will win the hearts and minds of your customers. The right patents will prevent others exploiting your ideas or provide a substantial barrier to market access. Copyright, confidentiality and rights to designs also play a vital role. We focus on key sectors relevant to you such as lifesciences, automotive, manufacturing, consumer products, financial services and TMC. This means you get in-depth industry knowledge as well as legal expertise. If you are involved in a dispute, we can guide you through the litigation process, ensuring the best outcome in both domestic and international courts.

In China, we also have strategic collaborations with China Pharmaceutical University (CPU) and other leading academic institutions, enabling high quality technical analysis in a broad range of scientific disciplines and support from leading research professors.
