Intellectual property law is a vital tool in the creation and protection of dynamic business assets and Edwin Coe’s Intellectual Property team combines dedicated IP specialists and heavyweight litigators.

We provide a full service from the acquisition, exploitation and protection of intellectual property, through to its commercial use and the handling of infringement and other contentious issues.

The IP team has considerable expertise in the non-contentious areas of IP, including trade marks, copyright and design rights, technology agreements and licences, exploitation and protection of brands, new brand launches, preparing and negotiating a wide range of commercial contracts and agreements, and advising on IP matters in the context of M&A.

The head of the intellectual property team, Simon Miles, is also a UK and European Trade Mark Attorney, and with a blend of solicitors and attorneys the firm is able to offer expert advice in relation to brands.

One of our partners, Nick Phillips, has for many years been an Independent Expert appointed by Nominet to determine domain name disputes.

Our sector experience includes charities and not-for-profit; sport and leisure; IT and media; art and design; and retail. Our reputation for heavyweight litigation also makes us a popular choice for tricky contentious IP matters.

Edwin Coe is a corporate member of The Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys (ITMA). ITMA is a professional membership organisation which represents the interests of the trade mark and design profession, primarily in the United Kingdom but also internationally.
