Advertising and Regulatory

What our intellectual property lawyers do


Successful commercial trading and advertising requires compliance with a range of regulations designed to protect consumers and competitors from poor trading practices. Our experts will help you achieve compliance and also ensure that any trading activity damaging to you, is stopped.

Our expert solicitors are familiar with the range of regulations which you need to comply with depending on your trading style and methods. We regularly advise in relation to the advertising of goods and services. We work regularly with the ASA and are familiar with the Advertising Codes. We also advise on marketing, comparative advertising, direct selling and data protection.
