Jonathan Thurgood

Leading UK & European brand lawyer - HGF Ltd, London

If you need a secure and lasting identity for your products or services, and to protect your brand identity, then you need to ensure your freedom to use your brand, and then protect and defend your trade mark rights.

I make a very complex topic very straightforward for you, giving you the chance to take the actions you need to take. I help you get it right first time.

I work with businesses and organisations on their national and global IP strategy. I am best known for my clear and concise communication skills. I build, develop, and enforce Trade Mark, Design and other Intellectual Property rights and advise on all parts of this process. I work across every commercial sector, with particular experience and expertise in the automotive, financial services, pharmaceuticals and general consumer products fields.

I am a partner in one of the most prestigious firms doing this work in the U.K. and Europe. If you want to arrange a complementary 10 minute call to discuss any part of your need to develop and protect the identity of either one of your products or businesses, I would be happy to chat with you.
