Licensing and IP

Your intellectual property is what sets your company apart and if you lose control of your IP, you've lost control of the greatest asset business has. That's why it's crucial that you understand how to protect it to keep your business safe. But with so many ways to secure different types of IP, tech businesses sometimes choose the wrong protection or, worse, don't protect their IP at all.

Protecting your IP isn't just about preventing your ideas from being stolen. At Berwins Digital, we know it's a lot more powerful than that - IP protection is an effective way to create an exciting future for your company. Simply put, by investing in robust IP protection, you're investing in the value and potential of your business.

The right safeguards mean that your intellectual property can be used to generate income. Licenses aren't just there to cover your back, they can actively improve your market share and increase your profits. Licensing your innovations can lead to a steady stream of royalties and additional income. And further down the line, if you decide to sell or merge your business, registered and protected IP can have a huge impact on the value of your company, so securing your IP is an investment in the business.

The first step to protecting your IP is to identify and understand it. What does it need to be secure? As intellectual property lawyers, we can help you protect and commercialise your IP in the right way by assessing what needs to be protected and by setting you up with effective contracts.

Whether it’s copyright advice or registering a trademark, we've got your back. We also work alongside other specialists to help you set up patents, design right, or certain categories of trademarks to make sure your IP is properly registered and protected.

IP rights represent the crown jewels of technology companies and Berwins Digital help you protect them. We offer IP services on a national and international basis. Give us a call on 0113 426 6396.
