Baines Wilson has appointed Adam Turley as an intellectual property law specialist. Adam joins as Associate Solicitor from a specialist intellectual property law firm in Newcastle upon Tyne.
Adam brings experience and expertise in all areas of intellectual property including 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. Additionally, Adam 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.
Adam’s appointment means that Cumbria and North Lancashire based businesses can now access trade mark and design registration services without travelling outside the region.
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.”
Speaking of his appointment 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.
“Baines Wilson have built up a formidable reputation as a market leading commercial law firm. I’m therefore excited to be joining them and look forward to working with their existing clients and supporting Cumbria and Lancashire’s business communities.”
