From the inception of your business, it is crucial to plan a strategy around your IP and invest in it. As soon as you start trading, you are building a brand; protecting it and the associated intangible assets is a must. Even at this early stage, don’t overlook the need to register your trademarks. Investment in protecting your IP now will pay dividends later, when you come to sell or divest. We can advise you on how and when to protect your IP rights.

In general, starting out is always a challenge. It’s risky, it’s expensive and you’re working with ‘unknowns’. We can help you develop sources of finance and your  IP strategy as you take your first steps to building a successful brand and business. Our experts routinely advise companies about securing finance, raising funds, preparing business plans and advising on structuring deals.
