The World Intellectual Property Office defines intellectual property (IP) as ‘creations of the mind, such as inventions, literary and artistic works, design, and symbols, names and images used in commerce.
At MKB Law, we help businesses to best protect and commercialise their IP assets which they invest considerable amount of time and resources in creating and developing. We assist in registering, maintaining and enforcing IP rights such as brand names and logos, photographs, writings and artwork. Upon entering into commercial contracts, such as licensing, franchise, influencer agreements and commercial terms and conditions, we seek to ensure our clients have maximum protection of their IP rights and assets.
Our Litigation Team can also act on your behalf in copyright or trademark disputes, and will aim to achieve the best possible outcome in a timely and cost-efficient fashion.
Our specific areas of focus include:
In-depth advice on registrability of a mark and risks associated with infringing third party rights
Trademark registration and monitoring in the UK
Cease and desist letters
In case of dispute, advise on breach of contract, torts, reputation management, mediation.
