Intellectual Property

For many businesses a key element of their value and their assets can be their “intangible“ intellectual property rights - copyright, patents, trade marks, design rights, or brand protection. As well as being difficult to value, these rights can sometimes be difficult to identify. This area of law is complex and we advise that you take advice from specialist intellectual property solicitors.

Our team can advise you on what rights belong to you or to third parties, how best to protect ownership of these rights, and how to commercially exploit them.

Whether it is a trade name, computer software, a corporate logo, a novel idea or business method, there may be elements that you can register, and you can protect your rights by having a contract drafted to clearly set out the permissions you want to grant to another party.

If you need to use intellectual property belonging to another party, you need to make sure that the contract between you gives you sufficient permission for the future, and is not too restrictive. Our team of experts can advise you in this area.
