Intellectual property


Every business, whether you operate in a creative or innovative industry, or simply supply goods and services to customers, will own some form of intellectual property. For some, intellectual property rights will be the life-blood of the business and warrant the best protections which can be obtained. For others, protection may simply extend to the branding of your products or services.

In our experience, intellectual property is a very often overlooked and valuable resource. We believe it is vitally important that any business recognises the value of its intellectual property and where appropriate takes the necessary steps to identify, protect, exploit and prevent infringement of those rights.

In some cases, a failure to identify and protect your intellectual property rights at an early stage may ultimately see you losing your commercial advantage in the market place (for example by giving a spring board to a competitor who may not have been required to invest the same time and resource in developing an innovative product as you may have) or even losing your exclusive rights altogether.

Our specialist commercial lawyers can help you identify, protect, exploit and enforce your intellectual property rights. We can also manage your intellectual property portfolio to ensure that any renewal dates are not missed and all registrations are kept up to date. We will provide you with practical, commercial and professional advice tailored to your needs.

We understand how worrying legal costs can be so we have a range of payment options available to suit your budget and needs. We offer an Intellectual Property Audit as a bolt-on service to our Business Check.  Why not call us now to arrange your free consultation as part of our Business Check package.
