CONTENTIOUS IP

There is nothing to be gained from conflict for conflict’s sake, and Harrison IP will always endeavour to resolve IP disputes with what is optimal for your business in mind. We go into all disputes (whether initiating or defending them for you) with the idea that a mutually acceptable settlement is at least possible, if not always achievable.
