After all your hard work and dedication, you need to make sure your innovations are properly protected using the law. Your intellectual property is a valuable asset that may be central to the future of your business. Making sure your competitors aren’t able to benefit unfairly from your effort should be a top priority.
Strengthening your advantage
Your intellectual property could be your logo and corporate identity, or it could be products, services and processes like trade secrets, industrial designs and tools. It includes aspects of your branding, such as product names and corporate colours, your product or service innovations as well as any creative works like software. In short, it is your secret recipes and processes.
Whatever it is, it sets you apart from the pack and gives you a number of distinct benefits. It is likely your competitors will be looking to level the playing field, and some may choose to try and make your ideas their own. Especially in the age of the internet, companies of all sizes and shapes are at risk of having their competitive advantage unfairly chipped away through having their intellectual property and domain names infringed upon. We can give the strongest legal footing to minimise the risk and help you react effectively to any infringements or IP disputes that do occur.
The definition of intellectual property protection is creating a package of rights to stop others from profiting from your ideas and shield your market share. By using patents, trade marks, designs and copyrights, our expert intellectual property solicitors can prevent anyone else using your ideas for profit without your consent. If you’d rather keep all this secret, we can help you put in place processes and contracts to do so to keep your developments away from being released to all.

You don’t need to worry about the technical details, we will provide you with clear guidance and a strategic framework for maximising the value of your business assets.

Patents, trade marks, designs and copyrights
Our clients want confidence and clarity when it comes to protecting their intellectual property. Getting the best results mean understanding the commercial landscape our clients and their competitors operate in and tailoring our guidance to fit their needs. There are a number of tools at our disposal.
A patent gives you the legal right to exclude others from making use of your intellectual property for a set period of time, but may not be the best type of intellectual property protection for your business as you are required to make your innovation public at the end. Trade marks can be used to identify particular services or products as yours, so that competitors cannot claim them as their own. Meanwhile, copyright protects creators with automatic ownership of their work, whether that is software, music or fashion designs. Designs protect the appearance of items, giving you rights to stop lookalikes. Ensuring you get the right value and benefit from intellectual property protection means thinking carefully about which of these are necessary for the future success of your business.
