You’ve developed an innovative product or process, created a novel design or distinctive brand, now what can you do to make sure you protect your ideas and know-how from a legal perspective?

Just like your house or car, your ideas are valuable and need to be protected against theft and misuse. If you have developed an innovative product or process or created a novel design or distinctive brand, it’s important to protect these aspects of your business as well.

Our Protecting your IP Workshop, designed to help you safeguard and maximise the potential of your Intellectual Property (IP), will cover:

  • What is IP
  • Why it’s worth protecting as a business asset
  • Commercialise your IP with reference to case studies  

Join us for an invaluable workshop, hosted by Cullens’ Patent Attorney and Trade Marks Attorney Justin Sweetman.
