Ward Hadaway has teamed up with the University of York Law School to support postgraduate law students offering free legal advice to start-up businesses across the North.
Good ideas are in the DNA of every successful business, but how do you ensure your ideas are protected?
New technology and globalisation have combined to shrink the world, opening up more opportunities for businesses, but also increasing the scope for valuable ideas and key brands to be copied.
How can you ensure your intellectual property is safeguarded whilst at the same time making the most of its potential?
Protecting, developing and exploiting the commercial potential of ideas is in the blood of our intellectual property team.
From hi-tech start-ups and entrepreneurs to international brands, we are trusted to take care of a wide range of intellectual property in the UK and across the world.
Taking the right approach to intellectual property rights can protect your ideas, expand the markets for your products or services and prevent your competitors from making use of technology that you own or have developed.
Our intellectual property team is made up of specialists working in all industry sectors with the experience and commercial approach that businesses value when developing, protecting and commercialising their intellectual property rights.
Whether helping innovative new businesses in their early stages, managing intellectual portfolios for mature enterprises or helping large businesses break into new international markets, our commitment to high quality advice and support is constant.
And when it comes to infringements, we are there at every step of the process, from notification through to court action, where necessary, while always keeping a close eye on costs.
