We regularly advise some of the world’s largest pharmaceutical and life sciences companies on the protection of what is one of their most valuable assets, their brands, as well as on developing copyright and database rights issues relating to the protection and exploitation of valuable data.
We are regularly asked by our life science clients to advise on the protection and enforcement of their brands. Our recent experience includes High Court litigation and trade mark registry proceedings, as well as advising on the settlement of licensing disputes and on parallel imports. Our team is uniquely placed in this area given the huge wealth of life science experience across Bristows, and we regularly work with our Regulatory, Competition and Commercial IP colleagues.
The ease at which data can be “scraped” from websites and exploited by third parties continues to be a challenge for data owners, but also an opportunity to develop potentially life-saving products from the innovative use of data. We are regularly advising on this rapidly developing area of law.
