Intellectual Property Advice

Intellectual property rights (trade marks, copyright, patents and registered designs etc) have the potential to be some of the most valuable assets your business owns.

We can help you understand what rights you have and how best to protect them. We can also advise you how to use your intellectual property rights to increase your profits and the value of your business.

If your rights have been infringed, for example if your products have been copied or if a competitor is using your brand name as a key word in their advertising, you need to act fast! If you don’t, you could lose the protection you have.

We can take legal action to stop infringers and recover damages to compensate you for lost sales.
