Protecting your ideas
Your intellectual property is a key asset to your business. Ultimately all retailers are dependent on their ‘brand’, and intellectual property law is a key tool to protecting that.
We have vast experience in providing up-to-date and accessible advice on how best to acquire, protect and enforce intellectual property rights in order to safeguard various aspects of your business. We advise on:
- Trade marks – to protect your company name and product and service brands;
- Designs – to protect your product designs and the packaging and get-up used for them;
- Copyright - to protect the layout and content of your website and other advertising material;
- Confidentiality – to protect trade secrets and other proprietary information such as customer lists and price lists.
We also advise on all aspects of commercial agreements which concern intellectual property, from drafting trade mark licences to negotiating complex software agreements where intellectual property will be at the heart of the project.
With vast experience in advising high profile PLCs and SMEs across the full spectrum of intellectual property-related matters, you can rest assured that whether you’re looking to maximise the value of your intellectual property or are looking to take action when your rights are being infringed, you’re in safe hands.
