Meet The Team

Sheffield and its neighbouring towns have a rich heritage and world-wide reputation of innovation and creativity across a wide range of sectors. Protecting the rights of what a business or individual has created requires specialist legal knowledge, and we have a team of expert solicitors who can advise on patents, trademarks, copyright, and design rights.

COVID-19

During the new lockdown we will continue to work remotely wherever possible. However, our offices will be open should it be necessary to visit to deliver documents or to see any of our solicitors. Please make sure that you make an appointment for any visit as we need to limit the number of visitors to our offices at any one time and ensure that they and our staff are safe.

Where possible we will arrange virtual meetings by video conference/telephone with our clients and others when appropriate. If you want to talk to one of our solicitors or need legal advice please contact us and we will do all that we can to assist. Please bear with us if it takes a little longer than usual to reply to you.

Anyone visiting us at our offices will need to wear a face covering and follow all the government guidance regarding social distancing.


Many businesses are unaware of the variety of Intellectual Property rights that are available, or which may affect their business. If your business involves the creation of original work of any kind, whether that’s a new product, design or service, then you need to be taking steps to protect your most asset.

We advise clients in the initial stages of any potential clash of rights as well as advising on Intellectual Property audits, general protection, and various registration matters.
