The use of technology and intellectual property is critical to the competitive success of all businesses in the current economic climate.

Many legal and commercial issues arise through the development and deployment of technology, in addition to those generated by intellectual property law.

Protecting and using these valuable assets requires a strategic approach. This is particularly true of technology-led companies. But businesses that might be regarded as less 'cutting-edge' should also have an awareness of the competitive advantage that full use of technology and intellectual property brings.

What is Intellectual Property?

Intellectual property is any creation that you physically create. This includes inventions; artist and literary works, designs, symbols, names, images and photographs.

  • Patents
  • Passing Off
  • Designs
  • Copyright
  • Confidential information, trade secrets and "know-how"
  • Trade marks

An understanding of these issues is so important to your business.
