Intellectual Property Rights

The protection of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) is a major aspect of innovation and technology.  As well as working with legal advisers and patent attorneys on traditional protection methodologies such as patents, trademarks, copyrights and design rights, there are also corporate structuring driven protections. 

These include:
 
  • the use of limited liability companies to protect IPR;
  • the separation of IPR from trading companies;
  • setting up new group companies to protect IPR;
  • setting up companies outside group structures to protect IPR;
  • splitting an existing group to separate trading group companies from IPR protection companies.
