Enforcement & litigation

Applying for and registering IP is often only the start of a commercial journey. IP rights are business tools and can be used in many ways – one possible use, which our skilled attorneys can advise on, is in enforcement and litigation. This can mean preventing a third party from infringing your rights, seeking an injunction or simply obtaining payment for the use of your IP. Conversely, if you are approached by an IP owner with the threat of litigation, our team can also help.

Whether it is in an offensive or defensive action, Beck Greener has a team of IP litigators who can assist with all stages of IP enforcement and litigation. Depending on the size of the claim we can also sometimes help to build, and then work with, a specialist group of solicitors, barristers and technical experts.

We understand, though, that litigation is usually the last resort, and our commercially minded attorneys will work hard to resolve issues as cost effectively as possible. Starting with an initial review of the merits of a case, we will provide practical advice on the most appropriate steps. Sometimes a robust letter before action can be enough to induce an infringer to back down, or some tough negotiations can result in a speedy settlement.

However if the case doesn’t settle quickly, out skilled and highly successful litigators will be with you all the way, from devising a full litigation strategy through to navigating the complex paths through the IPO, the IPEC or the higher courts.
