IP advice for advisers

AdamsonJones, patent and trade mark attorneys, is delighted to host an event aimed at providing an overview of intellectual property (IP) for non-specialist solicitors, accountants and other professional advisers.

Steve Jones, Chairman and Patent Attorney at AdamsonJones said, “Intellectual Property – patents, trade marks, registered designs, copyright – has an increasingly high profile, yet remains a grey area for many businesses and those who advise them.

“Commercial solicitors often need to deal with contractual issues relating to IP, as well as with litigation and dispute resolution. For tax consultants and accountants, the introduction of the Patent Box tax regime in April 2014 means that a basic understanding of IP can help them provide the best advice and ensure that their clients are able to maximise the value of their intellectual property.

“We hope this event will prove useful to any professional advisers involved in helping innovative start-ups, entrepreneurs and SMEs, as well as established larger companies, achieve the greatest return on their investment in bringing new products and services to market.”

The seminar will outline the key features of the IP landscape, with an emphasis on the issues that professional advisers need to be aware of, as well as the roles of patent and trade mark attorneys and the ways in which they cooperate with other advisers.
