Designing, inventing, creating or improving a product is one of the most common ways to start a business, company or service. In times past inventions and new ideas were typically tangible items, but now they are often ideas, concepts and technology components that make work easier, more efficient or much more accurate. Having a way to protect these ideas from duplication or theft is an important aspect to any business and business owner.
An Intellectual Property (IP) solicitor is a legal expert that can help protect your great ideas -your Intellectual Property rights and assets. In situations where a patent is an option he or she can complete documentation and manage the seemingly endless stream of paperwork. In the case of an idea, having a good understanding of what your Intellectual Property rights are and how to protect them can be the difference between being the established entrepreneur or being just one of the crowd in the same business field.
The role of your IP Solicitors in protecting your UK based business will vary depending on the specific type of service or product represented. As mentioned above a patent may be in order but you may also want to seek overseas or UK copyright or license protection for your idea. This not only ensures that you are unique in the market but also provides long term sustainable value to your business assets. When it comes time to sell your company, enjoy retirement or move on to other interests your company is strategically placed to bring a good price precisely because it is unique and different from the run of the mill competition.
An Intellectual Property Lawyer will help in defining just what it is that makes your idea different than the rest in today’s rapidly evolving global economy. His or her legal experience and expertise will help you in all aspects of legally protecting your ideas and developments both now and into the future.
