Individuals and businesses invest substantial amounts of time, money and energy in building their reputations and goodwill, and these need protecting.
Our Intellectual Property team will advise on how best to safeguard your name, images, logos secrets and products from those seeking to copy, capitalise on or compete unfairly with your work.
Our Media Disputes team will advise you on how best to protect your reputation. Sometimes this may require litigation (for example for defamation, trade libel, breach of confidence or infringement of privacy), at other times a less aggressive strategy may be more productive, involving complaint to an industry regulator, search engine maximisation or working with public relations specialists. Our expertise covers social media, including obtaining disclosure orders against internet service providers.
Our Trade Marks team advises on all matters to do with branding, trade marks and logos, including protecting your logo from unlawful copying or infringement and establishing it as a trade mark. While many law firms outsource their trade marks work to trade mark agents, BWB retains its own experienced trade marks specialists in-house.
