About us: the Brand Protect team

At BRAND PROTECT, we offer legal advice about intellectual property (IP) in the UK and EU. We provide advice on protecting your company against infringement of trade marks, patents, and copyright, as well as all aspects of licensing, franchising, counterfeiting and related litigation. See our services page for information on the range of services offered by BRAND PROTECT. Our core ethos is to support our clients with bespoke solutions to their IP issues that reflect practical business-like decision-making, and are cost-effective.

Our intellectual property specialists have assisted many individuals, companies and government departments in the UK, Europe and internationally. BRAND PROTECT is privately owned with offices near Oxford, and a network of well-established IP affiliates around the world.  BRAND PROTECT started in 2003 and has offices in the UK and Ireland.

Because we are able to provide advice at economical prices to our clients, most prefer to engage us on a permanent basis to advise on their global intellectual property strategies and to ensure that their assets work for them 24/7.

Our clients rely on us for all their IP needs. These include pre-eminent multi-national companies, financial institutions, investment groups, law firms, accountants as well as small to medium sized businesses and private individuals. They value our specialist expertise in IP and our knowledge of the opportunities and challenges this presents to business. We are qualified and experienced IP practitioners capable of and willing to represent your business interests.
