Intellectual Property Dispute Resolution

What our intellectual property lawyers do


As leaders in the field of intellectual property law, and with a national and international reach, DMH Stallard is ideally placed to help you resolve any disputes which may arise in relation to the protection and management of your intellectual property rights and assets.

Our specialist intellectual property team includes experienced civil and criminal litigation lawyers who have a track record of dealing with disputes effectively and on a commercial basis.

Our team will resolve the infringement or theft of your trade marks, patents, design rights, copyright, database rights, confidential information and know how. They also advise on unfair competition and trading practices, employee management and all related contractual and reputational issues.

The team uses Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), arbitration, mediation and expert determination as effective ways of resolving disputes on amicable and commercial terms.  The team includes partners who are accredited mediators with The Centre for Dispute Resolution (CEDR) and is experienced in running cases through the High Court and London’s Intellectual Property Enterprise Court.
