Registration of Intellectual Property
For many types of IP, the registration of that IP with the relevant governmental official office provides the owner with the strongest form of protection as it confers a state granted limited monopoly. .
We assist our clients in obtaining registrations for their IP both in the UK and EU and also internationally through our global network of tested and trusted contacts. We have a good track record of navigating trade marks that are difficult to register through both registry and competitor complaints. The registration process is assisted by having applications managed through our specialist IP Portfolio Management software.
Our services include:
- trade marks
- domain names
