Registering Trade Marks and Designs
A trade mark can be a name, symbol, design or word that identifies your business. Having a registered trade mark means that your brand is protected and it prevents unfair competition. Your trade mark, or design, can be an important business asset, therefore seeking expert intellectual property advice is key.
Defending IP Infringement Claims
When you need to defend your intellectual property, you need a solicitor that can guide you through the process. If someone has used your intellectual property (IP) without permission, this is infringement and you can look to claim financial compensation for intellectual property infringement.
Licensing IP Rights
As the intellectual property owner, you may decide to license your IP as this can often help a business expand into new markets and geographical areas, whilst also enhancing your reputation. By giving another person the right to use your intellectual property, drawing up an IP licence agreement is important and will protect your business.
IP Ownership Disputes
Sometimes, disputes can seem unavoidable. When you are dealing with intellectual property such as patents and trade marks, these can be important business assets and if another business infringes your IP, you need to take action. This is essentially a commercial dispute and getting expert legal advice to resolve an IP ownership dispute is vital.
