Looking after client lists and data theft

Equally, lists of clients and client databases can also be a valuable asset of a business and its theft or duplication by unscrupulous individuals and/or employees can often be exceptionally detrimental to the business.

Rights exist in these databases which can be enforced, and we can assist you in bringing a claim against an infringing party.

Your website is your business's front door

Websites are often the first point of contact for customers and clients and therefore the right domain name is a valuable asset to a business. Cyber-squatting occurs when someone registers a domain name which you want - or may want in the future - with the sole intention of selling it to you at some other point in time.

There are also individuals what deliberately cause damage to a business by registering a domain name similar to yours with a view to causing you or your business damage. In such circumstances, action can be taken. This can often result in the transfer of ownership of the domain name from the infringing party to the rightful owner.
