Ideas are powerful. They help forge business empires, cure disease, inspire enduring creative work – and much more. Ideas generate IP. And because they’re at the root of innovation and growth, they deserve the very best protection.
Our expertise helps you to protect your IP portfolio and enforce your IP rights worldwide. You’ll put your IP in the safe hands of specialist lawyers who cut their teeth at the forefront of pioneering technology and in well-known, IP-rich companies. So you’ll always have access to a team rich in real world experience – and real industry insight.
Then it’s about going further. Mastering the detail. Simplifying and clarifying. Connecting with you to immerse ourselves in your IP challenges. And generating answers that can give you a competitive edge.
At Bird & Bird we recognise the true value of your IP assets, your ideas and your future. Enabling you to focus on your business, your brand and the difference you make.
