Browne Jacobson LLP is a top 50 full service law firm ranked 1st in 26 areas of law in Legal 500, that is committed to a true partnership approach with our clients, as building long-lasting relationships is at the heart of what we do. We are a law firm with a track record of delivering tailored solutions to our national and international client base – including blue chip corporates, major retailers and manufacturers, insurers and public sector entities.

Our 21 strong intellectual property team led by “leading individual” Declan Cushley is recognised by Chambers as “a worthy alternative to a big City law firm” and is ranked by World Trademark Review and Managing Intellectual Property, as well as Chambers and Legal 500. Our team is based in London, Birmingham and Nottingham, and has extensive experience assisting a premium client portfolio.

Our practice spans the whole range of IP rights across both contentious and non-contentious matters, whether it be complex patent litigation, trade mark strategy and protection advice, advertising and marketing matters, copyright-related issues, IP licensing arrangements, R&D and collaboration agreements or design rights advice.

Our patent experts are regularly involved in significant patent disputes, including recently a complex case about X-ray scanning devices and a Court of Appeal case relating to drilling components, as well as skilled at negotiating high value R & D agreements and complex licensing arrangements. Our IP team also includes brands specialists who have worked with many world-famous companies to enforce and exploit their trade marks.

We have built close relationships with patent and trade mark attorneys, working with them for over a decade, which enables us to give clients what they need – a truly integrated, exceptional client service experience.

We are also co-founders of an international network of independent law firms, Pangea Net, a non-exclusive network operating in 25 countries – and our reach extends well beyond that; we have overseen the delivery of advice for our clients from 60 jurisdictions in the past 12 months.

Browne Jacobson’s commitment to client service excellence was formally recognised in 2014 when it became the first UK law firm to be awarded a three star rating by Investor in Customers followed by the Law Society’s Excellence in Client Service Award 2014. The firm also holds the Law Society’s Lexcel Practice Management Standard and ISO270001: 2013 accreditation which demonstrates its commitment to the highest legal practice management standards achievable.
