The safeguarding of Intellectual Property (IP) rights encompasses the full life cycle from protection through to commercialisation and enforcement. In keeping with Adamson & Partners’ broad expertise across all areas of Intellectual Property, we have a team exclusively focused on recruiting IP litigation positions, both in private practice and industry, and on an international basis.

The enforcement of intellectual property assets necessitates strategic thinking, careful planning and constant vigilance. To achieve this, we provide companies and law firms with individuals and teams who can combine deep technical expertise with an ability to compellingly defend or enforce a case.
