Intellectual Property

From trademarks to trade secrets, we know how to protect what is rightfully yours.

We’re living in the information age, and intellectual property is more important than ever before. As intellectual property isn’t something you can necessarily see, feel or touch; it can be something that business owners don’t prioritise.

Intellectual property can include anything non-tangible about your business from trade marks and patents to copyright, trade secrets and confidential information. It’s important to consider what IP your business may own, and then how to protect it. Beyond trademarks, this may include trade secrets or confidential information. Every time you open your intellectual property up to partners, customers and suppliers, your business is at risk.

We take a holistic view of your business’s intellectual property. Your business might be generating new IP every day, so keeping on top of it is key. We work hard to continually protect what’s rightfully yours, and understand the true value of your hard-earned property. 

Defending Your Intellectual Property

The larger your operations become the more IP you will have, and the more protections will need to be in place. That’s why it’s best to prepare ahead of time, to save you disputes and lost dollars down the track.  

Thankfully, with the right legal protections are in place, most serious issues can be easily prevented. The OpenLegal team is able to recommend the protections that your business needs, in a way that makes sense.

We dig deep to understand the risks your business is facing, and provide a plan of action for how best to address it. We know the most efficient ways to get the resolutions you need, fast.
