We can advise you on the most appropriate intellectual property protection available whatever products or services you offer. That includes investment, financial trading, credit, loan finance, cash handling, cashless payment, currency exchange and betting. In the same way, we can protect the IP of insurers and other professional services firms.

That way you can safeguard your company in each territory in which you do business, now or in the future, whatever your areas of operation.

Our team can assess each aspect of your products and services and advise which elements you should seek to protect. This may include aspects of how your product works and the visual appearance of what you are offering.

We can also assess your proposed branding from the point of view of registrability and recommend changes to help you obtain registered trade mark protection.

If your product has an innovative way of working then it may be worthwhile filing one or more patent applications. These need to be filed before the invention is publicly disclosed. For this reason, it is important that you come to us at the earliest possible stage so that we can advise you on how to keep the invention confidential before filing applications. We can also advise whether any aspect of your products or services risks infringing the earlier rights of others and what changes you could make to reduce that risk, and our team of lawyers can guide you through any litigation matters.

Aside from protecting your ingenuity and investment from unauthorised copying by others, protecting the inventive, design and trade mark aspects of your products and services will make them more attractive to investors and lenders. In addition, patent protection may also entitle some of the profits gained from your products or inventive processes to a more favourable rate of taxation.
