Laceys Solicitors are the only Dorset firm to have been recognised within Intellectual Property (IP) within the 2020 Legal 500 Guide, an independent endorsement for the excellent service we provide to clients.

IP covers several areas – Trade Secrets, Trade Marks, Copyrights, Patents and Design rights, all of which help protect the different assets which make up your brand.

When it comes to consumer choices, your brand matters, people are prepared to pay more for what is often essentially the same product, because of the brand connected to it.

In a world where it is becoming harder and harder to be truly original it is becoming increasingly important to ensure your unique concept, products or services are protected with IP, which in turn will increase the value and viability of your business.

Laceys are able to carry out trade mark searches in the UK, Europe and elsewhere, as well as work with you on how to best protect your branding and intellectual property.

Please contact Sam Freeman, who has been cited as a ‘leading lawyer’ within the 2020 Legal 500 Guide, for further advice on IP.

“I’ve been working with Sam for a couple of years on a very wide range of marketing communications. Sam has a natural attention to detail and a refreshing attitude to the work we’ve collaborated on. The launch of the new Laceys site is now the benchmark for the brand and business offering. Sam has been at the heart this journey and has been a key driver for the consistency any strong brand should have. It’s exciting to be working with a solicitor’s firm that really understands their vast audience.”

Jamie Shanks, Green Tambourine

Sam joined Laceys back in 2015 to help look after the marketing for the firm. Her role includes managing branding, website content, events, advertising and social media for Laceys.

Before joining Laceys Sam worked for over 10 years in several marketing agencies in London, managing client projects across different sectors, ranging from Coca Cola to the Department of Health. Having grown up in Poole herself, Sam and her family took the decision to move back to the South Coast a few years ago to bring up their young children.

Outside of work, Sam is a keen racquetball and tennis player and getting out on her bike to the Purbecks when time allows. She is also partial to a good glass of wine and dance when the opportunity arises!
