IPR Infringement

IPR Infringement

The intellectual property and the goodwill of your business are valuable assets. We can help you protect them.

You need to act quickly to stop infringement of your intellectual property (such as your brand, website content, inventions, client lists, goodwill and know-how). If you know infringement is happening but allow it to continue you may lose your right to take action later.

There are many different types of infringement but common types are:

  • unauthorised trading on the back of your reputation by pretending to be your business or wrongly claiming an association with your business, goods or services (known as passing off)
  • stealing, copying or adapting your inventions, database, trademarks, software, designs, website content or know-how
  • use of a very similar domain name.

You could still have rights even if you do not have a registered trademark.  If you believe someone is breaching your Intellectual Property or copying your business, contact Gotelee’s Dispute Resolution Team.

We can also help you if you have been accused of infringement – a situation that should be addressed immediately to avoid matters going from bad to worse.

How can we help?

We advise in relation to:

  • infringement proceedings
  • letters before action and undertakings
  • injunctions
  • issuing proceedings
  • defending proceedings
  • mediation
  • arbitration
  • settlement and co-existence agreements
  • licensing arrangements
