Service highlights

We advise interior and landscape designers on documenting and managing contractual relationships with customers, suppliers, sub-contractors and other business partners. Whatever the circumstances, we help you ensure your written agreements fully reflect your requirements of your commercial relationships, and protect your interests without getting drawn into irrelevant legal detail.
We assist with all aspects of establishing, exploiting and protecting your designs and brand, including manufacturing, distribution, advertising and marketing, sales and licensing related matters. If selling directly to customers, whether online or through a retail store, we provide you with practical advice to help you prepare for and comply with consumer protection laws.
We provide rounded and expert advice whether you are looking to buy, sell or raise finance against significant art pieces. As well as advising on complex acquisitions, ownership structuring, financing, provenance, philanthropy and title disputes, we also advise on reproduction of artwork, including copyright permissions for catalogues and marketing, royalties and loans to and from other institutions.
We assist with all aspects of establishing, protecting and exploiting your intellectual property rights. In particular, we help with the registration of trade marks, design rights and domain names in the UK and other jurisdictions. We also advise on the protection of your copyright and other existing rights, and on how to avoid infringing the rights of others.
