Protect your ideas

When you have an idea for a potentially lucrative product or service, you risk others stealing your ideas and selling them as their own.

Depending on the type of asset you want to protect, you can use patents, trademarks or copyrights – all of which cover different areas of intellectual property (IP). We understand how to use these legal tools to prevent competitors or anyone else from profiting from your ideas without your consent.

IP protection can be as essential for the largest corporations as it is for the smallest start-ups. Even huge corporations have had their ideas and designs infringed upon and have won multi-million pound lawsuits as a result.

Protect Business Growth

If you are a business – irrespective of size – it is crucial to protect unique products or services for which you own the IP rights, as competitors can use your success to effectively reduce your market share, resulting in slow growth or loss of revenue. If this happens to your business, we will advise you on the appropriate course of action to take.

Losing market share early on in the life of a business can have a profound effect on its ability to attract investors (for more information, see optimise as an investment), employ staff and ultimately increase profits. It’s important to remember that no one else will check to see if your IP rights have been infringed; it’s your responsibility to ensure that no one else is using your assets. Doing this yourself can be time consuming and expensive, but we will handle this for you.
