Members of 3PB’s commercial group include specialists with substantial experience in advising and representing clients in disputes relating to intellectual property and related rights. We undertake work in relation to trade marks, passing off, copyright, database rights, design rights, domain names, confidential information and trade secrets.

The team frequently represents clients in the High Court, the Intellectual Property and Enterprise Court, and the United Kingdom and EU Intellectual Property Offices (UKIPO and EUIPO). We are able to respond quickly to obtain urgent Court relief, where necessary. We can advise you on the suitability of urgent relief, and guide you through the tactics and procedure of obtaining it.

Our clients range from individuals and SMEs to international corporations and other organisations. We have advised and represented many well-known cosmetic and fashion labels, leading retail brands, premiership football clubs, telecommunications companies, charitable organisations, supermarket chains and many more in relation to the protection and enforcement of their IPRs.
