Protect your most valuable assets
At Capital Law, we’ve built up considerable experience in Intellectual Property. Specialising in both contentious and non-contentious IP work, our IP lawyers work with a wide range of clients, from start ups to high profile brands, advising on all aspects from trade mark registration and brand management enabling you to brand protect whilst exploiting the value in your IP.
There are wide ranging issues to consider when managing IP, many of which do not become apparent until it is often too late. Start ups and organisations going through the process of rebranding are commonly unaware of the dangers involved in not properly investigating whether they actually have the right to use their elected business name/brand name. Furthermore, if inadequate protections are in place, a rival firm could stop another from using a name or brand that they may have considered to be theirs for a very long time. The impact of this could be devastating.
Consider the online brand of your business. When commissioning designers to create a new website, you need to be sure that the agreement between your business and the web developer actually transfers ownership of the IP in the content of the website to your business, otherwise your business could find itself in a position of not owning the content of its online presence.
There have been numerous cases of well known, and not so well known, brand names having their visual identity copied or mimicked. We advise on what you can do to prevent this happening, and how to resolve it if it does.
The IP within your business has great value. We can help ensure that you are in control of it, that it is protected from infringement and that its worth is exploited to the full.
