Intellectual property

Your business is unique

We’ll help you keep it that way.

Your intellectual property makes your business what it is. Let us do the necessary work to protect it.   

We can help you:

The knowledge you need to keep your IP safe

Your organisation’s brand identity, know-how and inventions are what set you apart from your competitors. Because we’re different too, we understand the value of your uniqueness. It’s why we care so much about helping you hold onto it. 

We can help you put the right protections in place for your intellectual property rights, and make sure you don’t give too much away in the event of a collaboration. We’ll also make sure you reap the right rewards should you decide to licence or sell your intellectual property rights to a third party.

If you think your intellectual property rights have been stolen or used without your consent, we’re on your side too. We’re recognised by the Legal 500 for our knowledge of IP law – we really know our stuff and will fight to protect what’s legally yours.

It was an easy decision to choose Murrell Associates

“During our first international brand collaboration with H&M, Rebecca was with us every step of the way. We couldn’t compliment her enough for her fantastic support throughout the process. We were dealing with both UK and Swedish law and Rebecca and her team made it as stress free as possible. We’ll definitely work with Murrell Associates again.”
