Intellectual Property Law
Protecting your business’ Intellectual Property (IP) is essential. Your business may well depend upon intellectual property whether it’s copyright, trademark protection, design rights, database rights or patents. If you fail to protect your IP then your competitive advantage in the market place may be lost and the value of your business can be diminished.
At Tollers, we have a team of intellectual property specialists who have the knowledge and expertise to help you protect your business IP.
Intellectual Property Law
We can assist you in the identification of your IP and can provide advice in relation to registrations. We work closely with external trademark and patent attorneys and can refer you to the right professionals to deal with registration applications for your business anywhere in the world.
In addition to protecting your IP you may also want to exploit it by entering into licensing deals. Our IP solicitors can assist with the drafting and negotiation of the legal agreements, whether in the UK or internationally.
Protecting Intellectual Property
It is very important that you take all necessary steps to enforce your IP rights in order to protect the monopoly that registration provides, to protect your goodwill and also to stop it from being used in a way that brings your business into disrepute and potentially affects trade.
The confidential information developed by your business is also a key business asset. We will advise on the protection of your confidential information and can prepare agreements to protect this. These agreements, often called non-disclosure agreements or NDAs, will be tailored to suit the particular reasons for your disclosure of confidential information to a third party.
When considering your IP it is important not to overlook every asset capable of protection. In the world today the use of technology and websites is key and the protection of your domain names is just as important as your branding. We can assist with protection of your domain names against third parties seeking to profit from your brand reputation.
Sale and Transfer of Intellectual Property
As part of our service to you we will also help with the transfer, purchase and sale of intellectual property to third parties, co-existence agreements and agreements between joint owners.
