Intellectual property protects intangible assets, including new ideas, technology, products, software, creative works, and brands.

What do we do?

Our intellectual property experts help to protect and commercialise the intangible assets that make a business stand out from the crowd. Whether it’s technical ideas, brands, creative works or software, we can help.

Combining a deep technical knowledge of the law with straightforward commercial pragmatism, we focus on finding intelligent solutions that work for businesses. We advise on all areas of intellectual property law, including trade marks, patents, passing off, copyright, confidential information and domain names.

We have a unique proposition within the Gateley group: dedicated patent and trade mark attorney teams at Adamson Jones and Symbiosis IP working side-by-side with solicitors at Gateley Legal. This means you have access to specialist expertise for IP protection and assessment, alongside joined-up thinking with wider commercial considerations.
