Intellectual property

Scott Farnsworth has specialised in intellectual property law and practice since 1994: he has developed his practice to concentrate upon non-contentious ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ intellectual property, covering all aspects relating to patents, trade marks and passing off, registered and unregistered designs, copyright and related rights, confidentiality, know-how and trade secrets.  Scott’s advice often combines with associated aspects of competition law, and other commercial law elements, and extends beyond pure intellectual property to include related matters, such as fiduciary duty, restrictive covenants, and pure economic torts.

Intellectual property is often business critical, and clients must be confident they are supported by genuine expertise with clear and solid commercial advice.  With 26 years’ experience of intellectual property law matters, Scott has concentrated his practice upon 4 main areas: trade marks & branding, design rights & engineering, patents & life sciences, and universities & students, including all associated aspects of due diligence within his practice areas.  Scott’s work to capture, exploit, and enforce his clients’ intellectual property is underpinned by his extensive sector experience, knowledge, and technical expertise.
