What intellectual property (IP) do you own? Is it properly protected? Could you be infringing others’ rights? To get a clear picture of where your business stands, an audit could be the answer.
An IP audit can reveal whether you need to consider filing for patent, trade mark or registered design protection. At the same time, we’ll review your partnerships with contractors and consultants, making sure there is no confusion over who owns any IP rights. Doing this early on in your working relationship can avoid potential pitfalls – saving time and costs.
Our audits don’t just focus on the present. We can also suggest ways to ensure any future intellectual property you create is correctly identified – and suitably protected.
If you’re a UK-based SME, you may qualify for audit funding from the Intellectual Property Office. To find out more or to discuss your individual needs, contact us.
