Intellectual Property Solicitors at Forbes Solicitors

Forbes Solicitors' Intellectual Property Solicitors know that Intellectual Property can be one of the most valuable assets in your business and as easy to lose as it is to create! At least 80% of the value of every business is found in some kind of intellectual property, regardless of industry location or size.

It is likely to be the case that your business has Intellectual Property that you are unaware of and therefore the initial identification of Intellectual Property is vital to enable you to take the necessary steps to protect and exploit it.

Once Intellectual Property has been identified our Intellectual Property Solicitors can help your business protect and exploit it through registrations and implementing the right terms for each commercial application whether this be through keeping it confidential, allowing others to use it through licensing agreements or selling it outright. Our expertise includes:

  • Identification of Intellectual Property
  • Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreements
  • Registration such as Trade Marks and Designs
  • Protecting unregistered Intellectual Property such as Copyright, Trade Marks and Designs
  • Exploiting Intellectual Property through Agreements such as Assignments and Licenses
  • Franchise Agreements
  • Research and Development Agreements
  • IT, Website and Software Agreements
  • Intellectual Property Disputes

Our Intellectual Property Solicitors understand the importance of teamwork and if you select Forbes Solicitors for your Intellectual Property needs, we will work closely with you to gain the best possible understanding of your business and legal requirements.

Intellectual Property can be a complicated and confusing but universally important in adding value to a business.

The Corporate & Restructuring Department also offers Forbes Foresight, a free review of the legal position of your business.
