Trade marks – Intellectual Property

Our Intellectual Property team advises on all aspects of the law relating to media and intellectual property. This includes copyright, trade marks, design rights and related areas of competition and European law.

Registering a sign as a trademark is a great way of protecting your company name and branding. We can advise you on the many different types of signs, such as words, logos, pictures and shapes that can be registered.

Our trade mark lawyers can advise you as to the likelihood of a sign being registered as a trade mark – and the types of goods and services that your trade mark should cover and then help you through the registration process.

We regularly register trade marks in the UK and in the European Union and can advise you on the best method to replicate any registration around the world.

If someone is applying for a mark that is similar to yours, we can advise you on how to oppose that application, whether by engaging in opposition proceedings or obtaining other forms of protection, such as co-existence agreements.

GSC’s Media & Entertainment group has been ranked with the Legal 500 editors commenting “The group’s main focus is in the music industry, although it also handles publishing, advertising and digital media matters. Clients include music licensing body PPL, on a raft of enforcement actions and the PRS for public performance enforcement work with Justin Goldspink particularly noted for contentious matters.”

‘A small firm which punches well above its weight’ GSC Solicitors LLP undertook leasing transactions for several blue-chip corporate tenants, particularly in the media sector. It acted for a number of hotel owners regarding the acquisition and development of new hotels.

“We have found the service excellent, and it is for this reason we have continued to use GSC. The key strengths for us have been a commercial approach to deals that is often missing from solicitors, and a personal service based on a knowledge of us and our needs and long-term plans.”

“The main positive comparison we have noted from GSC is the personal touch and commercial acumen.”

“We have often used different legal firms for IP and other work in the past, but GSC’s commercial approach and professionalism, coupled with the excellent working relationship we have built up over a number of years makes it our preferred choice.”

“As a Financial Advisor I have been personally using and recommending GSC for over thirty years. I have referred clients of mine to them and only ever been thanked for the recommendation, which should convey the confidence I have in the individuals, and the firm.”

“Great result today. Just wanted to say thank you for your continued hard work in fighting our corner on this case. You have both been amazing. Michael incredible support and good ideas.”
