Intellectual Property Disputes

Whether it’s the reputation associated with your brand, an idea you’re turning into a business, a certain design on your product or your premises, or simply an internet domain name, intellectual property is just as important, if not more important, to your business than physical assets. It is important that you protect your intellectual property. Whether a competitor is infringing on your intellectual property rights or you are being wrongly accused of doing so, the specialist commercial litigation solicitors at Jones Whyte can help. We have in-depth experience in intellectual property disputes.

Intellectual Property Disputes in Scotland

Large businesses often look to “shop around” when it comes to countries in which to enforce their intellectual property rights, but the courts in Scotland are often overlooked. The expert solicitors at Jones Whyte are experienced in handling proceedings in the Court of Session, which has jurisdiction over intellectual property matters in Scotland in cases where the defender’s registered office is in Scotland, the defender has a place of business in Scotland and the infringing activity is taking place in Scotland.

Types of Intellectual Property Disputes

At Jones Whyte, we are experienced in assessing the strengths and weaknesses in an intellectual property dispute, and well placed to offer you the advice and guidance you need.


If you have a logo or a certain design for your brand, it could even be the way that your brand name is written, and someone else attempts to use it or mimic it to sell their product or service, then this is known as passing off. The experienced commercial litigation lawyers at Jones Whyte are ready and capable of assisting you in any dispute regarding passing off.


Our trusted solicitors are able to help clients throughout Scotland with any rights over creative intellectual property that they want to assert. We are experienced copyright solicitors.


If you have designed a new product, you will want to ensure that no one can copy it. To do this, you need to take out a patent. At Jones Whyte, we can assist you in this process and in enforcing the patent.

Domain Names

Domain names are a relatively new area of law and a complex one at that. If a competitor has registered a domain name that makes use of your brand in order to use your reputation, then we can help in your dispute. This area is governed both internationally and by the UK, and the solicitors at Jones Whyte have the legal knowledge and experience necessary to help you.
