Intellectual Property Solicitors
Identifying intellectual property rights should be a focus for all businesses, whether you are an entrepreneur, start-up, SME or international organisation.
All businesses face competition and a good awareness and protection of your IP rights goes a long way towards giving you a competitive advantage and strong brand which you can monetise.
Intellectual property is now a huge part of today’s economy. Clients who need IP lawyers typically expect their lawyers to be fast moving, proactive, flexible, creative and to spot both the commercial opportunities and the risks. We’re exactly that type of law firm – dynamic, modern and forward-thinking.
You can rely on us to protect your interests, plan ahead, get the right contracts and structures in place and where necessary, take action to defend your intellectual property.
The rapid pace of innovation in recent years has transformed the technology and business services sectors. This has triggered impacts in many other sectors and changed the way people do business. As a result, companies and entrepreneurs face a host of challenges, including enhanced data protection laws and numerous copying programmes and hackers, not to mention keeping up to speed with ever-changing laws as new technologies continue to emerge.
Where to start – identifying your IP
Identifying intellectual property rights should be a focus for all businesses, whether you are an entrepreneur, start-up, SME or international organisation. IP is not just for technology startups. All businesses face competition and a good awareness and protection of your IP rights goes a long way towards giving you a competitive advantage and strong brand which you can monetise.
Some IP rights arise automatically but others (and in particular stronger, more easily enforceable forms of protection) need to be registered at the appropriate registry.
