Team Showcases Cross-border & IP Expertise In Recent Transaction

Reasons to choose Wilson Browne

The Company & Commercial team at Wilson Browne Solicitors is pleased to announce the successful completion of the international registration of a complex series of bespoke industrial designs for a UK client.

The registration process was conducted under the Hague Agreement through the International Bureau of the World Intellectual Property Organization and created internationally recognised legal protection for the designs concerned.

The nature of this advice highlights the depth of knowledge available within the team which extends far beyond the typical M&A, company disposals and exits advice, that people often associate with Company & Commercial work.

This required specialist knowledge of IP protection issues and procedures together with the ability to work and interact with cross-border agencies within the scope of the applicable international legislation.

Company and Commercial Partner, Duncan Crowther, commented:

We are delighted to have completed this complex series of industrial design registrations, which now gives the client wide-ranging legal protection of the designs within multiple countries which are signatories to the Hague Agreement.

The Company & Commercial team at Wilson Browne Solicitors are able to offer a wide range of intellectual property-related legal services, including the registration of industrial designs, patents and trademarks, and the sale or licensing of intellectual property assets.

For a no-obligation, free initial discussion regarding any aspect of intellectual property protection or licensing (or any other aspect of Company & Commercial law), please contact Duncan Crowther on 01536 218888 or by email at
