An overview of our services

We structure international contracts for the development and licensing of software, for patent and trade name or brand licensing, and for general intellectual property exploitation. We work with other speciality services to provide legal solutions for international business, particularly for the exploitation and protection of intellectual property rights.

Specifically we assist with negotiations on, and draft and review software licence agreements and related services and other commercial agreements for clients operating in the field of e-commerce. We also advise on associated legal areas such as database and domain name rights and digital rights management and distribution.

The formal intellectual property practice includes the drafting, filing and prosecution of patent applications and the filing and prosecution of trade mark and domain name applications. An important area of practice is the maintenance of clients' intellectual property portfolios. The enforcement and defence of intellectual property rights, through our network of international associates, is also a part of our services.
