Intellectual Property

We understand that our clients invest significant time and money in developing their brands, inventions and designs and are on hand to assist our clients with the identification, protection, management and enforcement of the underlying intellectual property rights.


We assist clients with filing trade mark and design right applications both in the UK and abroad. We also assist with exploitation of their intellectual property rights through licensing and assignment agreements.


We regularly advise clients on intellectual property infringement matters and assist with settling matters out of court where possible.


Our specialist intellectual property solicitors provide support to the corporate team, which regularly includes assisting with mergers and acquisitions and corporate restructures.


We also specialise in advising on collaboration agreements between brands who wish to work together on a combined project. Having assisted Women + Waves with its collaboration agreement, founder Rachel Murphy said:


“This is our first international brand collaboration and it was an easy decision to choose to work with Murrells due to previous commercial law experience with the company, which had gone very well. Rebecca was with us every step of the way and we couldn’t compliment her enough for the fantastic support through the process. We were dealing with both UK and Swedish law throughout the contract, Rebecca and her team made sure that it was as stress free as possible, we will definitely work with Murrell again in the future.”
