Protecting Your Intellectual Property
Even the smallest of businesses may need to think about protecting intellectual property (IP). Our intellectual property solicitors offer an affordable proactive advisory service for startups and SME’s, to save you future heartache or disappointment. Your IP lawyer will provide practical advice on copyright and trademarks as well as related issues such as licensing, information technology and data security.
Protecting intellectual property
Intellectual property is something unique that you physically create. The intellectual property, once formed, is an asset that is capable of ownership and value. Protecting intellectual property is an important consideration for any business.
You may have more than one form of IP in your business. These rights all operate with differing rules, lifespans and enforcement procedures. Some require registration such as patents and trademarks; while others can arise automatically such as copyright and unregistered design rights.
One of our intellectual property lawyers will work with you to build up a full picture of your intellectual property position.
