Protecting your Business Ideas
Do you know what intellectual property (IP) your business owns? This free workshop will help you find out if you're missing an IP opportunity.
Nic Ferrar, patent attorney at our Leicester office, will run through some practicalities of IP and how IP strategy can be implemented alongside other business plans. Nic will also explain how the key to managing IP opportunities and threats is to ask some basic IP questions at the right time.
IP is typically seen as a niche pursuit that is shrouded in legal complexity and relevant to only a small percentage of technology-focussed businesses. However, IP can be crucial to any business’ success over time, no matter its size.
Your trademarks are your business’ identity; they allow your customers to distinguish your products and services from your competitors.
Choosing and protecting your trademark can be fundamental in the success of your business, get it right and you will have a valuable asset - get it wrong and it could be a costly error.
This workshop is delivered in partnership with LLEP Business Gateway, UK Intellectual Property Office (UKIPO) which is an operating name of the Patent Office and AdamsonJones, and is funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
Places are limited and priority will be given to trading SME’s based in Leicester and Leicestershire. Maximum 2 delegates per company.
