We are barristers with over 40 years experience of cases involving trading standards and IP infringement and are recognised as leaders in the field.
We have represented trading standards in some of the most impacting and complex cases that have been litigated in recent times, and are now increasingly instructed by brand holders directly to protect their IP rights, as the ability for trading standards to do so is hampered by budgetary constraints.
We provide comprehensive advice and representation in relation to:
Brand protection strategies
Liaising with trading standards
We regularly work with trading standards, but also have strong links with investigators capable of assisting our clients in both online and physical sectors, and are proud to be proactive members of the ACG.
