STOBBSIn 2013 Stobbs IP was formed with a team of 18 people, aiming to be a different kind of brand advisory firm. In 2016 Stobbs was awarded Tier 1 status by the Legal 500 and won Managing Intellectual Property’s award for UK Trademark Firm of the Year. Further, in 2017 Stobbs was awarded Tier 1 status in Managing Intellectual Property’s IP Stars and rated as highly recommended by World Trademark Review. In 2018 Stobbs was again awarded Tier 1 status by the Legal 500 and won Managing Intellectual Property’s award for UK Trademark Firm of the Year.

Today, Stobbs has a team of more than 100 professionals, defining its intangible asset management focus that was first introduced in May 2019 at the INTA conference in Boston. It seeks to address five questions. What if issues were viewed through the commercial rather than legal lens? What if trademarking and IP were handled in a better way, by experts who are legally trained yet commercially driven? What if IP expertise was blended with a knowledge of business, a passion for brands and a practical approach to problem solving? What if legal reassurance and competitive advantage could be achieved with a down-to-earth approach that thrives in the grey but always speaks in black and white? What if a top-end legal service did not break the bank?

Stobbs provides expertise across all aspects of brands, including investigations, licensing, commercial contracts, designs and copyright, disputes, domains, litigation, online brand enforcement, trademarks and brand valuation.
