 How We Can Help Secure Your IP

How We Can Help Secure Your IP

October 26, 2017

In this information-led economy, intellectual property is key. If you understand IP, and protect your assets strategically, the value of your IP could make your business far more valuable than the multiples of earnings figure might suggest. Consider the huge sums businesses like Instagram have fetched, and you’ll appreciate that owning an IP asset that is a strategic fit for a buyer means your business will be worth more.   

If you ever plan to sell your business or want to attract investment, your intellectual property must be properly secured.

Companies of every size depend on their IP, even if it is not the core part of the business. For example, you will need to protect your business name and web presence even if you’re not aiming to be a major brand and ecommerce business. Doing so helps you avoid risks like discovering that someone else is using the same name and diverting business away from you, or receiving cease and desist letters or take down notices for using third parties’ IP. These actions can cause huge stress and worry to any business unlucky enough to be on the receiving end of them. The business you have built up over the years could be seriously damaged beyond repair by an IP dispute.
