Intellectual Property Audits

We recognise that while many businesses appreciate that the intellectual property they have developed is a valuable asset, due to the complexity of the law in this area, they often do not fully understand the extent of their intellectual property portfolio and therefore the extent of the intellectual property protection that their business has.

 

We are experienced in providing full intellectual property audits to our clients which involve a comprehensive investigation of the current rights held by the business and their scope and the production of a report summarising the results. We will also make recommendations on how the business could extend its protection going forward, for instance, by requiring third parties to enter into assignment agreements where they are commissioned to create intellectual property on behalf of the business or by registering rights where appropriate.

 

If you would like any advice or assistance in connection with the carrying out of an intellectual property audit please contact us.
