Drystone Chambers is one of the leading sets in London in matters concerning intellectual property crime. Members of chambers act for Trading Standards Services, rights holders, companies, partnerships and individuals across the full calendar of criminal offences involving intellectual property rights.
We receive instructions in all types of counterfeit goods and piracy cases. We offer a ‘start to finish’ advisory and representation service, from the outset of an investigation to enforcement of court orders. We understand the demands of large-scale investigations on both Trading Standards Services and those who are subject to them and give sensible and cost-conscious advice.
Uniquely, Chambers is also able to offer expertise in all matters relating to computer forensics and information technology. In this regard, we are adept at assisting in finding evidence (often deleted) on imaged hard drives and at the presentation in court of electronically stored material.
