Interior designers, product designers, software and web designers all have a unique position within the mass and bespoke manufacturing and digital industries. Businesses in these sectors are often small independent design studios but their interaction has a dramatic effect and outcome.
We have grown up within these industries and been a part of the development of web design over the last 15 years. We are uniquely placed to understand the complex and overlapping requirements of our clients and their customers, irrespective of whether we act for the designer or the manufacturer.
Our clients also include conceptual artists, who increasingly we find play a role in the creative processes of both manufacture and advertising.
We have a thorough understanding of our clients’ commercial arrangements, including fees, royalties, rights clearance, protection and rights exploitation in general. The advice we provide to our clients in these sectors includes in relation to intellectual property, company and commercial law and litigation and dispute resolution.
Calvert Solicitors is particularly linked to these sectors. Nigel Calvert is a patron of the arts and has dedicated much of his free time to give lectures and talks to both students and industry professionals on a broad range of intellectual property issues.
