Protect your intellectual property

Alexander Graham Bell wasn't the first person to invent the telephone but he was the first to patent it.

Protecting your intellectual property is crucial if your business is developing a new product, service, brand or process.

Our specialist advisors can help with international patents and patent searches, trademarks and trademark searches and designs and copyright. From time to time, we also run seminars and events in partnership with the UK Intellectual Property Office, The British Library and the European Patent Office.

Eligible businesses can get financial assistance to carry out an Intellectual Asset Management Audit and to protect patents, trademarks, design registration and licensing agreements.
