Although, as a creator, you have a copyright on your work without any formalities being required, it can be useful to perform certain actions that provide certainty about the date of creation. Should a discussion arise in the future, it may be crucial to be able to prove the earlier existence of your work. Other rights, such as trademarks (and, with one exception, designs), may require registration again.
Each intellectual property right has specific requirements and its own protection regime. We help you to identify the right protection for your creations and then with the appropriate procedures to obtain or increase protection. We also work out the right strategy and actions in case someone infringes your rights.
