Expertise > Global  > Intellectual Property Law
We have a well-established and experienced intellectual property practice in the British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands with a client base ranging from multinational corporations and major international law firms, to specialist IP boutique firms representing some of the world’s largest IP portfolios.


Our IP services include registrations of trademarks and patents, and renewals and assignments of trademarks. Our patent attorneys can also assist international watching service firms with the monitoring of trademark registrations, while advising on potential infringements through our own independent watching service.

Intellectual Property Litigation

While our aim is to avoid expensive contentious proceedings, we have considerable experience in opposition proceedings and will defend our clients rights before the courts.
