In a competitive business environment, leading businesses are focusing increasingly on developing and exploiting their intellectual property (IP) as a way to differentiate themselves from competitors.
Whether you’ve just created a new logo, a catchy slogan or a great new product, managing your intellectual property appropriately is fundamental to ongoing success – not seeking and maintaining the proper registrations can make you vulnerable to imitation, with little recourse other than lengthy legal wrangling.
So at Wortley Byers Law, we advise you on how to best protect your position, and can seek appropriate registrations on your behalf for a fixed fee we agree at the outset. We’re highly experienced in filing trade mark applications in the UK, the EU and worldwide, and can give expert advice on developing strategies for full IP protection, and even identify where no formal registrations are needed.
Since IP rights are often less than straightforward or obvious, we offer a full review service with ‘health check’ recommendations.
We can also help you exploit the full value of your IP, and we have particular expertise advising on third-party use of your rights through licencing arrangements and assignments.
