It is vital for any business, whether a small start-up or a large corporate, to protect its intellectual property (IP). Kenny Spring Solicitors can provide practical legal advice around protecting your existing IP, the registration of Patents or enforcing infringements that may have occurred.
What is Intellectual Property?
IP is the property of your mind or proprietary knowledge. It is a productive new idea you create and this can be anything from an invention, trade mark, design, brand or even the application of your idea. Your business may have a wealth of IP, from the name on your door to an innovative new process or a new product idea, and we can help develop and IP strategy that is right for you.
Why you need to protect your Intellectual Property
It is important to speak to someone early about protecting your IP early to avoid problems with your idea being public.
By getting one of our lawyers to Register your IP, you will then have exclusive rights over that idea. You will have the opportunity to sell, promote or develop your product while limiting competition from other businesses or individuals for a set period of time. It is worth talking to our commercial lawyer about the restrictions in both duration and scope over IP protection.
Applying for an IP right to protect your idea can be critical if you want to build a business and establish your presence in a market. We can assist in protecting your IP and also help if you think that your IP has been or is being infringed.
