Our analysis can form the foundation of a successful damages claim. We can guide you through the entire claims process, providing sufficient material to evidence the full scale of harm done.

Remote working and the threat to IP assets

Remote working has become far more common in recent years and many employees live in another region or even country to the company they work for. Confidential information and IP assets travel via multiple channels and across borders, increasing the risk of leaks and misappropriation.
If a remote-working business suffers an infringement, the investigation must be meticulous. Expert guidance often proves crucial.
