    Our lawyers handle advice on copyright and design matters in a variety of industries. We advise on issues relating to the ownership, subsistence or validity, exploitation and infringement of copyright and designs, including in relation to cross-jurisdictional issues.

    We provide clients with practical day-to-day advice to ensure their ownership of copyright and unregistered designs in the works and materials created by their employees or sub-contractors, and the licensing, assignment and exploitation of rights in an array of industry sectors across the media, telecommunications, hospitality, transport, oil and gas and FMCG sectors.

    We also have extensive experience of advising on infringement and - in the case of registered designs - the validity and revocation of rights.
