Ensuring that each link in the chain of title is evidenced can avoid difficulties in a subsequent challenge to a registered intellectual property right


Enthusiastic about the detail

We are trusted by some of the world’s largest companies to handle and coordinate the recordal of changes in ownership of registered intellectual property rights around the world.  Our people are enthusiastic about the detail, and the result – accurate register entries.

The Recordals team combines intellectual property contract law specialists and experienced paralegals, alongside patent and trade mark attorneys. This enables precise, efficient and cost-effective handling of everything from a simple name change to complex multi-jurisdictional recordals requiring the drafting of tailored confirmatory assignments for use where necessary across different jurisdictions.

We do not treat recordals as a routine administrative task.  Accuracy underpins our approach, but it is more than detail for detail’s sake.  The accuracy of an intellectual property register is a key step in demonstrating chain of title. Making sure that each link in the chain is evidenced can help avoid difficulties further down the road, if or when entitlement to a registered intellectual property right is challenged.
