A trademark is a type of intellectual property which refers to a “mark” of your trade, i.e., a logo, design, sign, expression, or word used in the course of business which identifies a product or service over others. Ownership of a trademark grants an exclusive right to the use of that mark within a certain geographical area. We help clients secure trademarks in Ireland, as well as internationally.

At Melvyn Hanley Solicitors we can offer expertise on intellectual property law and the relevant litigation services. Copyright law deals with the rights of a creator of various forms of works. This includes the right to produce copies, adapt, or make available those works, or elements of those works. Examples of such works include; books, photography, paintings, music, and film. The holder of a Copyright enjoys the right to prevent others from making copies, adapting or making that work available. It is often contentious and as such it is important to be able to establish that you are in fact the true creator of the works in question.
We help clients to document and secure their Copyright and guide them in the event of a dispute arising. Having strategic and professional legal advice on hand when you are defending your Copyright allows you to make informed decisions and take the correct course of action to protect or defend your intellectual property.
