Members of Chambers act in relation to every aspect of the enforcement and licensing of all intellectual property rights including:
• Patents, technology transfers, plant variety rights, pharmaceutical and environmental regulatory compliance.
• Trade marks, passing off, unfair competition, trade libel, domain names, sports and character merchandising, franchising and corporate sponsorship.
• Copyright, copyright tribunals, registered and unregistered design rights (both UK and Community), computer software and database rights, trade secrets, counterfeiting and criminal remedies.
In addition to our work before the UK Courts and the newly renamed United Kingdom Intellectual Property Office (UKIPO) we are also familiar with the procedures of the EPO, the CFI and the ECJ.
A number of the leading texts in the IP field are edited or contributed to by members of Hogarth Chambers. These include Copinger & Skone James on Copyright and The Modern Law of Trade Marks. For full details of these and of our many other publications, see our publications / seminars page.
We are well known for the seminars which we give regularly for solicitors and patent/trade mark attorneys. We consider such a marketing initiative to be an essential part of being a modern, top tier, forward-thinking chambers. For more details see our publications / seminars page.
"Hogarth Chambers continues to snap at the heels of the leading IP sets, and increasingly has the strength in depth that solicitors look for, particularly at the junior end. Commentators draw attention to the atmosphere of the chambers, and say its people are "friendly and very responsive - when you're in a high-pressure situation like a trial you really need a functional and efficient working environment, and that's what they provide." The set's welcoming attitude has allowed it to snare an increasing amount of instructions from outside London, whilst maintaining its connections with solicitors in the capital. Observers note that the set's administration is of a high standard and it has "very good clerks who will find you the right barrister and get things organised in a hurry." This capacity to work well at short notice and "juggle diaries in a very effective way" makes Hogarth a popular set to work with." Chambers & Partners 2012
