Patents play a pivotal role in safeguarding innovation and future return on investment. Applied correctly the proactive and strategic use of patents can safeguard contracts, generate new revenue streams, attract investment capital, exclude competition, and create advantageous positioning in key markets.
A strong brand is more than just the trade name or ® symbol applied to a product or service, it delivers considerable advantages. It is the most effective way to manage and protect your brand equity for long term success.
A product’s design is much more than just than the way it looks – it can have intrinsic commercial value that can be protected, especially when a design is the primary point of market differentiation.
