Beck Greener LLP
Trade marks have always been at the heart of Beck Greener’s offering. For over 150 years, we have been helping our clients to protect their trade marks, copyright, designs and other intellectual property.
From our offices in London and Spain we continue to provide our clients, who include many instantly recognisable brands, with a full range of services covering both UK and European Union Trade Marks and Designs.
This trade mark expertise has been widely recognised by the industry. We are, for example, often among the top filers of UK and EU Trade Mark Applications in the UK, and high up the list for most appearances at oral hearings before the UKIPO and the Appointed Person. Our team has also earned a global reputation for excellence in all areas of contentious trade mark matters, notably litigation.
We work with clients of various sizes across a number of commercial sectors. These range from large multinationals and internationally famous brands to small businesses and sole traders. Meanwhile, our experience extends to fields as diverse as telecommunications, publishing, luxury goods, professional services, TV production, fashion, household appliances, financial services, health and fitness, and retail. Regardless of a client’s size or field of business, Beck Greener is adept at meeting their specific needs and providing a tailored service to accommodate their requirements.
At Beck Greener, we do much more than simply protect and register trade marks. We understand that protecting and developing IP is of paramount importance to every business. That’s why we are focused not just on providing the highest quality legal support, but also on ensuring that our advice is commercially relevant, so that our clients can use our services to make the maximum impact in the marketplace. Our legal and technical skills, together with our years of experience and commercial acumen, enable us to guide clients from initial ideas to commercial success.
Most of Beck Greener’s registered trade mark attorneys hold law degrees, and many are also qualified as solicitors or barristers. This legal background, and our wealth of specialist IP litigators – who boast an enviable track record of success before the courts and the British and European trade mark offices – allows us to provide clients with the focused, robust advice they need to grow and maintain their brands effectively.
We also have international matters covered – leveraging our network of global contacts with firms of foreign trade mark attorneys, we regularly file and prosecute cases abroad.
