If you are new to the world of intellectual property and have come up with a new idea, whether it be a product or method, it can be difficult to identify the most appropriate type of protection due to the vast amount of information available.  

Just as every new idea is, by its very nature, different from ideas that have previously been seen, the protection available for your new idea may also be quite different.  More importantly, the protection that is most suitable for your new idea might also differ greatly.

Our aim is to guide you to the most appropriate type of protection and help you through the legal processes painlessly.  

We encourage you to get in touch so that we can help identify the correct options for your idea. 

However, if you would like to familiarise yourself with the relevant types of protection available, we have set out The Basics.  In any event, if you are new to intellectual property, we encourage you to be aware of some of the pitfalls that often catch people out.  On the other hand, if you are considering your options before seeking investment, please see our information on approaching investors.
