Trade marks and designs

Owners of existing high-profile brands need to tackle such diverse issues as brand dilution, counterfeit goods, online infringements and how to exploit brand value. The size and strength of Taylor Wessing’s European Trade Mark group and the variety of the brands we represent across all business sectors means we have outstanding experience in every area of trade mark and design law. 

When a new product is launched, it’s becoming increasingly complex to clear new brands for use in multiple jurisdictions.

By integrating all aspects of trade mark and design practice into one team, we provide a full intellectual property (IP) service, advising not just on clearance, prosecution and portfolio management, but also anticipating and handling litigation.

Our team has an excellent track record for successfully resolving brand disputes, including some of the most significant and complex disputes in national courts and the Court of Justice of the European Union.
