Making the most of intellectual property assets to create business advantage is a key driver for all businesses.
LK Shields has forged an excellent reputation, working with our clients in a diverse range of organisations and industries. Branding is a critical pillar of many of our clients’ businesses, including those in the financial services, food, alcohol, luxury goods and other FMCG markets. We assist in brand creation, registration and maintenance. We manage a large number of memorable trade mark portfolios for clients.
Clients in the software and computer technology, media, entertainment and services sectors depend on our lawyers. We help them to identify and secure IP assets.
In the patent-dependent sectors of pharmaceutics, biotechnology, medical devices, life sciences and manufacturing our lawyers help formulate strategies, litigate, licence, commercialisation and collaboration deals. We help with compliance and challenges to IP rights in these highly regulated sectors and particularly in patents.
We act for both franchisors and franchisees in documenting their relationships.
Many of our clients have products that are protected by intellectual property. We help them devise and implement programs to stop counterfeiting, piracy, screen-scraping, cyber-squatting, spamming and other infringing acts. We prosecute and defend challenges and disputes and regularly take enforcement actions against infringers.
