Copyright & Brand Protection

Briffa is a modern legal practice specialising in intellectual property (IP): the protection of copyright, designs, patents, trademarks, trade secrets and information technology.

A free information pack and regular bulletins on relevant issues are available.

Briffa runs two schemes, which are of special relevance to our members:

  • DesignProtect is an innovative service uniquely offering copyright registration and cost effective legal insurance for all your designs, which provides a £25,000 fighting fund in the event of your work being copied.
  • BrandProtect insurance covers the legal costs of bringing an action in the UK against anyone who has illegally infringed any registered trademark insured with Briffa; and defending an action in the UK brought by anyone who wrongly claims that your trade mark infringes their trade mark rights. Brandprotect members have access to telephone advice on any dispute concerning the trademarks and domain names, which are lodged with the scheme.
