Most of our intellectual property services are offered on a fixed-fee basis, so you know upfront exactly what will be delivered and for what price.

Intellectual property (IP) is the term used to describe your legal right to protect the value attached to productive new ideas created by your or your business. It could include a logo, design, invention, name or the applicant of an idea.

There is much equity in a well-recognised brand and protecting these assets and their associated value is vital to the success of any business. Consider the golden arches of McDonalds.

Although most people do recognise that there is value in their IP, they often fail to carry out the appropriate due diligence when they establish their business or take steps to protect new IP as it is created. Unfortunately, it is common for businesses to outlay significant time and money in establishing their brand, only to be forced to completely rebrand after receiving a cease and desist letter from a competitor.

On the other hand, your failure to properly register your IP could lead to a costly dispute with a competitor that may have been avoided if your interest capable of being revealed by their searches.

If you possess valuable IP or expect to in the future, get the right advice at the beginning to avoid making costly mistakes that can have disastrous consequences for you and your business.  

We offer a free 40-minute initial consultation to discuss your IP and recommend appropriate protection strategies.
