Intellectual Property Contracts

IP rights can be one of the most valuable business assets. As a result, protecting your intellectual property is essential.

The term covers patents, trade marks, copyright, designs and confidential information, whilst some areas need to be formally registered to be protected, other rights exist automatically.
