Intellectual property

The intellectual property of a business is sometimes its most important asset. Ensure that it’s protected properly to secure your business interests.

Understanding the range and extent of intellectual property rights can help individuals and businesses to profit from their endeavours. Copyright, patents, trademarks and design rights can all be protected and many of these arise automatically. Using a variety of Confidentiality agreements can ensure that other businesses do not try and take advantage of your own ideas and a Cease and desist letter can often put an end to any infringements. If you decide to sell or transfer your IP you will need an Assignment of IP document.
