The active protection of your intellectual property, whether by means of patents, registered trade marks or registered designs, is vital for all businesses. Not only does it protect the intangible assets of your business from misappropriation by competitors, it also generates valuable assets that may be traded or exploited to generate income or attract investors, for example.
