Focus on…Intellectual Property

Intellectual Property is an important and valuable asset for any business. Whether you are looking to protect your copyright, register a trademark or design or find out whether your idea for a product is already patented, we are here to help.
Phil Saunders, one of the team of IP advisors, said “Most of the business we see have not thought about their intellectual property. We can advise them on what they need to protect but also how to make sure they are not infringing on anybody else’s intellectual property. We try and demystify the terminology so that businesses are clear on what they need to do plus all our appointments are confidential and free of charge”
So, if you are not sure about what you can protect for your business book an appointment with us today.
