For Startups

Protection of Intellectual Property is a significant factor affecting the growth of a startup and we understand how important it is to create something new and then protect it from unauthorised use. We strongly believe that young creative minds are the drivers of an innovative future, and we want to provide you the support that you need to make this journey.

 

Formal Protection

We will conduct a full analysis for your invention to ensure what kind of formal protection is right for you. If patenting is the way forward, we will help you at all stages, right from penning your idea down, to applying for a patent, its commercialisation and renewals and ensure the safeguarding of your invention through its whole lifetime.
