Legal Advice on International Education Projects

A growing number of UK educational institutions are engaging in international projects. For example, the establishment of overseas campuses, collaborations with overseas education institutions or projects that cater specifically for the needs of international students in the UK. We can offer advice to a variety of investors in education.

International Trade Mark Registration

We have advised on international educational projects in Abu Dhabi, Cyprus, Dubai, central Asia, China, South Korea, Thailand, the UK and elsewhere. It is vital to protect your name and crest in relevant jurisdictions by registering them as trade marks. Before filing trade mark applications, you may well have no right to stop an infringer using your name overseas.


How can we help you?

  • Prepare and negotiate Memorandums of Understanding, Heads of Terms and binding project agreements
  • Protect your name and other trade marks internationally
  • Advise you on the impact of the Bribery Act
  • Arrange for local lawyers to advise on international regulatory requirements
  • Advise on the termination of international licensing arrangements

Project Partners

Your agreement with project partners may place obligations on those project partners to comply with local law. Agreements may well also state that they are subject to English law. Nevertheless, it is important to obtain independent advice on the impact of the local regulatory regime.

We are also increasingly finding that UK educational institutions' trade marks are being infringed overseas, which clearly can be very harmful.

We have a network of law firms across the world from whom we can arrange advice on international education projects, and who are on hand to deal with trade mark infringers. This includes firms in the Far East and the Middle East with whom we have worked on this type of project.
