Eversheds education sector - experience

Intellectual property

Our intellectual property team are experts at helping institutions protect and exploit their technology, brands and intellectual capital. We offer a unique combination of expert advice, sector knowledge and value driven service, which not only meets but exceeds the legal and commercial needs of our clients.

We are specialists in all forms of intellectual property, with experience in a diverse range of issues. Our team has worked with institutions on all areas from advising on IP capture, strategy and protection through to commercialisation.

In the creative field we have a specialist media team, with experience in fashion, film and music. We have worked with institutions to ensure that their IP Policies give them broad rights to use IP created by staff and students for various purposes including digital teaching materials and we can advise on processes to track such materials. As digital repositories become more important we have addressed issues around contracts with depositors and users.
