Intellectual Property


Bird & Bird has been at the forefront of IP for more than 100 years. This experience, quality of our work and passion for innovation differentiates our International Intellectual Property Group.

With over 300 highly specialised lawyers in 28 offices, we have one of the most respected intellectual property teams in the world. While our clients include some of the world’s leading brand names, we are also committed to helping small and medium businesses protect their valuable intellectual property.
Commercial awareness is key in a constantly evolving marketplace. We are recognised as thought leaders in IP; we take a cutting edge approach and provide tailor-made IP strategies that drive competitive advantage. Whenever there is innovation in an industry, we follow it.
It’s this reputation that has seen us involved in a number of ground-breaking decisions for our clients, across the full spectrum of our IP offering.
Our key areas of expertise include:
