The protection of goodwill and brand value
The protection of goodwill and brand value of your business should not be underestimated. You have created a unique business thanks to your expertise and hard work and it’s vital you protect it.
Intellectual property covers many aspects of the business including company name, domain names, designs, know how, systems, confidential information and contracts. We can advise you on the best way to protect these.
What would happen if another business set up in competition using the same name? They may have poached a member of your team and have access to your trade secrets including your database. We aim to put in place documentation that best protects your interests. If despite your best efforts someone breaches your rights, we can help you to move quickly to put a stop to infringements and protect your business interests.
What can you do if you are accused of using someone else's intellectual property or become aware of someone infringing your rights?
