IP specialist joins Baines Wilson

Adam Turley has joined Baines Wilson as an associate solicitor, specialising in intellectual property.

Adam, who previously worked for a specialist intellectual property law firm in Newcastle upon Tyne, brings experience and expertise in copyright, trade marks, designs and patents.

He has a strong track record in helping clients with the registration of trade mark and design rights, produces brand protection strategies and conducts intellectual property audits.

Adam also advises on the commercial exploitation of intellectual property rights (licensing, assignments, technology transfers and joint ventures) as well as enforcement and litigation services in the specialist intellectual property courts.

Andrew Hill, head of corporate and commercial and partner at Baines Wilson, said: “Brexit uncertainty means businesses should be re-viewing their intellectual property strategy to ensure they have maximum protection moving forward.

"This can be invaluable, especially for any business looking to sell. We’re therefore delighted to have a specialist join our team who can help clients with strategy review, strengthening the specialist intellectual property services we already provide.”

Brexit uncertainty means businesses should be re-viewing their intellectual property strategy.

Adam said: “The value of intellectual property has never been more important to the British economy. In this time of economic uncertainty businesses are looking at every possible angle to maximise revenue, and intellectual property is a valuable and often untapped resource in that regard. Clearly my role is to help them both protect and then tap this resource."
