Making the most of your IP

Intellectual Property is the key to drive growth and competition in the marketplace. The results of your R&D activity, other innovative ideas, branding, customer lists and trade secrets are essential to any business and more important than physical assets, but many business owners do not recognise this.

Do you know the full extent of your intellectual property? Have you protected business critical rights with formal registration? Are you confident that your intellectual property is yielding maximum financial gain for your business? Are you taking advantage of the innovation tax reliefs available?

Did you know that Intellectual Property increases the value of your brand and the commercial value of your business? It can be used to gain financing and venture capital and can generate additional revenue streams through licensing opportunities.

Our Approach

Our innovation tax reliefs team has partnered with John Pryor of Exalt IP, a specialist in Intellectual Property Strategy and Consulting. John has worked with innovative businesses for more than twenty years and since 2009, had been named by Intellectual Asset Magazine (IAM) as one of the Leading IP Strategists from around the world.

Together, we offer the full innovation healthcare package. We work together to ensure that your intellectual property is identified and protected and revenue streams identified and maximised with full advantage taken of the various innovation tax reliefs. We consider a joined-up approach essential to maintaining the wellbeing of your business.
