IP rights protect more than you might realise, and extend way beyond the well-known registered rights like trade marks and patents. Whether you’re a start up, scale up or an established business, your most valuable IP assets may be the unregistered rights that arise without you knowing it. If you’ve developed bespoke software, written website content, compiled a database or sketched out a new product design… then chances are you’ve created something that is IP-protected. We can help you to understand what rights you have and how to safeguard and harness them in a practical, efficient and cost-effective way – avoiding the many pitfalls of this complex, and sometimes illogical, area of law.
We’ll help you get the most out of your IP assets, whether that’s by capitalising on them through commercial transactions or identifying and protecting them to make your business more attractive to investors or buyers. If your IP rights are under threat, we’ll work alongside our expert dispute resolution team to take swift, decisive action to defend and secure them.
