Patents are proof of inventions and offer inventors protection against people who try to steal or copy those inventions. There are literally millions of patents that have been registered. Every day, someone, somewhere is applying for a patent. Patent rights are usually enforced in a court on the initiative of the right owner. In most systems, a court of law has the authority to stop patent infringement. However, the main responsibility for monitoring, identifying and taking action against infringers of a patent lies with the patent owner.

Whether you are an individual who is involved with inventing new products or a business developing new products, you will almost certainly require legal advice. The process of registering patents is – usually – straightforward, but there are often complex issues of definition and justification on which expert advice is required. If you have a dispute with someone either because they are copying your invention or because they are claiming you have infringed their patent, you should consult an expert lawyer.

Barristers who are specialist in intellectual property matters work with a range of industry sectors, among which are mobile phones and tablets, automotive technology, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, fashion, toys, electronic games and sport, media and the arts.
