Intellectual Property Rights
For many start-ups, in particular those involved with technology, the protection of your intellectual property will be one of the most important parts of your early stage development.
Ensuring that what you have created, or are creating, is protected from others taking your work and exploiting it for their own gain and not for yours is essential. It could be your creation in its entirety, it could be a small part of your work or maybe it's a licensing agreement, the simple fact is that you need to be protected.
We are in one of the most privileged positions of having one of the leading experts in this field, Ian Murgitroyd, Chairman of Murgiroyd & Co, on our board of directors so we are well placed to advise on how best you progress with this important part of your business planning.
