At Edwin Coe, we undertake all types of intellectual property advice including:
• Confidentiality/trade secrets
• Copyright and related rights including database rights
• Design protection
• IT, technology and communications
• Internet domain names
• Passing off
• Trademarks and portfolio management
Our clients range from large enterprises, to SMEs, charities, individuals and entrepreneurs. We provide a full service from the acquisition, exploitation and protection of intellectual property, through to its commercial use and the handling of infringement and other contentious issues.
Our reputation for heavyweight litigation makes us a popular choice for tricky contentious IP matters. We also have a thriving corporate and commercial department, which assists clients with a variety of matters often associated with non-contentious IP transactions, including preparing and negotiating a wide range of commercial contracts and agreements. Sectors in which we have particular experience include: charities and not-for-profit organisations; art and design; sport and leisure; technology and communications; food and drink; fashion and cosmetics and automotive.
