Technology/ Intellectual Property
We have a group of lawyers advising life sciences, technology and telecommunications companies on all aspects of their commercial arrangements. Many members of the team have worked in-house, been seconded to technology-based companies and/or worked outside the law, for example as computer programmers or in the laboratory.
We are used to advising clients on their IP strategy, helping them to evaluate whether and to what extent they should seek protection for their IP, including brand protection – we have our own trademark filing practice. We are also one of the law firms in England most regularly instructed to act on patent disputes. Our patents group works to resolve disputes where possible, but our success rate at trial is unequalled by any other law firm in England.
A market leader in these areas, we deliver constructive, commercial advice through a partner-driven service with total commitment to our clients.
In addition, we provide a full range of legal services including finance, corporate, employment, tax, real estate, intellectual property and dispute resolution, both in the UK and across the world.
Taylor Wessing clients include leading financial institutions, major corporations, public sector bodies and wealthy individuals and families.
