We regularly advise leading high street fashion retailers and designers on how they can best protect, manage and exploit their brands, designs, trade marks and copyrights.

Our 'one stop' service enables us to advise our fashion clients, for example, on the registration of brands and designs, the drafting and negotiation of licensing, franchising and other commercial agreements and on how to enforce and protect their IP rights when they have been infringed. We also have considerable experience of advising clients on all aspects of the advertising, marketing and promotion of their brands as well as on property, corporate, employment and tax-related issues.
