Intellectual Property is one of your most valuable assets and it comes in many forms that are not apparent when you are forming your company. This intangible asset when properly identified and protected can bring substantial revenue to your business and help your brand to become recognisable. And whether you are start-up or a well-known company that wants to commercialise your IP rights, you get more bargaining power when negotiating other corporate agreements since leveraging IP assets is extremely valuable. We are here to support you in every step of the way so others won’t copy you and also to make sure you realise the true value of the IP rights you may already have.
Our main Intellectual Property areas include patents, trademarks, registered and unregistered design, copyright and how to protect confidential information and trade secrets. We can help you create and develop your brand via an IP application and IP due diligence, or negotiate commercial agreements and ensure there are no missing provisions that may be detrimental to your company’s transaction. We provide continued brand management and negotiate joint ventures and all ancillary IP related agreements such as licensing agreements. We also advise on the acquisition or disposition of Intellectual Property assets in corporate transactions.
We can help you decide on a new brand and evaluate the likelihood of registering a successful trademark application. Recent changes to UK trade mark registrations via the Trade Marks Regulations, SI 2018/825 allow more marks to be capable of registration. This means that now other innovative ways of representing a trade mark might be granted a successful application as long as it is capable of representation on the register. We can help you decide based on your individual circumstances where to file your application in the UK, EU or another better suited jurisdiction.
