Legal Services





Intellectual property (IP) is a key asset that requires unique legal protection to help you reap long-term financial and competitive benefits for you and your business.

Brabners provides pragmatic commercial advice to help you enforce your rights or defend an action brought against you in an efficient and cost-effective way.

The company's Intellectual Property Team is made up of experienced lawyers, dual-qualified practitioners and specialist trade mark attorneys. It was commended for our Intellectual Property expertise in The Times' '200 Best Law Firms 2021' list.

The team is in the perfect position to provide a complete contentious and non-contentious IP service offering, through in-house attorney services, litigation advice and commercial contracts services.

Brabners can help you safeguard your investments in IP through the protection and registration of your brands, inventions and designs. Its team can also help you maximise the value of that IP through the exploitation and licensing of your registered and unregistered rights, including trade marks, patents, designs, copyright, confidential information and know-how.

In addition, Brabners can advise you on bringing, or defending, disputes related to the enforcement and infringement of IP. This includes passing off claims and company name and domain name disputes.

The company offers an end-to-end service, from identification and protection of your rights, through to development, commercialisation, exploitation and enforcement, as well as defence against third party challenges. We advise on portfolio strategies, IP audits, clearance searches and vulnerabilities in exploiting your rights.

This leading and sizeable Commercial practice includes specialists who advise you on commercial contracts, terms of business, e-commerce, IT contracts, data protection, competition and intellectual property.

It advises clients of all sizes from start-up entrepreneurs, owner-managed businesses and SMEs to AIM-listed companies and PLCs.

Claire Burrows is a partner in Brabners' regulatory team based in Leeds. She has more than a decade’s experience advising clients on how to keep up with the ever-evolving regulatory landscape and defending clients when things go wrong. Understanding the regulatory requirements of placing safe and compliant products on the market is fundamental to ensure you can access the markets you want, raise brand profile and avoid regulatory investigations, enforcement or customer complaints. Claire can help you to achieve all of those objectives and has helped other clients with:

  • determining which product safety regulations apply to particular products (and subsequent compliance obligations, including for new products and market entrants)
  • the role of economic operators in supply chains and subsequent obligations (including how to structure relationships to minimise obligations)
  • technical file and certification documentation requirements, including manufacturer declarations and mandatory product registrations
  • UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) and CE marking requirements
  • correct product labelling in the UK and EU
  • contract specification requirements when engaging with suppliers and distributors
  • product safety and recall policies
  • regulator engagement and enforcement actions.
