Azrights is an award winning intellectual property law firm that was set up by Shireen Smith with a very simple aim: to widen access to intellectual property and business law. Azrights is focussed on the legal needs of advertising and marketing, branding, web-design and digital agencies. It also assists a diverse range of SMEs with technology and commercial contract and dispute resolution work, brand creation, and protection, and management of intellectual property and intangible assets. Azrights takes a refreshingly different view of legal services and is a forward looking law firm that aims to better understand customer needs in order to meet them. It provides practical, commercially focussed advice that clients can act upon rather than on legal details that may have no commercial importance to a client's overriding business aims.
