Holmes’ commercial intellectual property team advises clients on the full range of commercial contracts relating to the exploitation of IP rights.

We have extensive experience in corporate and commercial transactions, focusing on IP acquisitions, re-organisations, disposals, joint ventures, and sponsorship. We work with brands providing strategic advice on a broad range of IP issues including those that arise in the initial stages of corporate transactions, implementing non-disclosure agreements, brand licencing and franchise agreements, selling and licencing IP and advising on best practice for use, protection, and enforcement of IP rights. We advise on corporate intellectual property due diligence reviews and strategic portfolio advice, and the acquisition / divestment and licensing of intellectual property rights, as well as preparing and implementing corporate intellectual property protection programmes, the international re-structuring of IP rights, and advising on employee rights and corporate ownership of intellectual property rights.
