Intellectual Property

Every business uses and generates intellectual property rights. They are often the vehicle to build, maintain and expand a business and its freedom to operate. At Marriott Harrison, we understand the crucial importance of IP rights – from a legal, strategic and business perspective.

Our expertise covers all types of IP relevant to our clients. This includes registered rights such as patents, trade marks, design rights, circuit layout rights and domain names and unregistered rights such as copyright, database rights, know-how/trade secrets, passing off, unregistered design rights and moral rights.

We have many years’ experience drafting, negotiating and reviewing the full range of contracts relevant to the creation, development, ownership and exploitation of intellectual property. These include licence, franchise, sponsorship, joint venture, collaboration, material transfer, development and consultancy agreements.
