Financial services

The UK is a renowned financial hub. New products, technologies and services are constantly being developed to improve security, methods of transaction and customer service. At the heart of this sector is the growth of Fintech and the IP that underpins it. Exploiting this time of change by building confidence and providing a personalised service is crucial. Your brand name, products and domain names need to be protected if they are your distinctive assets and main contact with consumers.

How we can help

Our teams will advise on the best protection for your products, supporting business and financial advisors in carrying out due diligence investigations. We can assist in the evaluation of corporate IP portfolios in relation to deals and transactions in which you may be involved. We work with a number of providers in the business and financial sectors such as major banks, accountants, insurance companies and business advisory firms, including Yorkshire Building Society, LV, JLT Insurance and Western Union. We help brands to protect and exploit their online presence, reclaim domains featuring from squatters or aggrieved customers, stop third parties from using copyrighted website imagery and bringing infringement proceedings against third parties trying to pass themselves off.
