WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO DESIGN AND PROTECT AT THE SAME TIME? 

Developing your idea is an exciting and dynamic journey, especially as each step can bring you closer to the tantalising goal of commercial success. To support and increase this likelihood it is important to introduce the advice of Intellectual Property (IP) specialists early in the idea development process.

To make it as easy, effective and cost-efficient as possible for you, we have developed an integrated design/ intellectual property advice process with leading IP specialists, Barker Brettell. By working together early in the design process, we can identify how we can best combine useful features and styling, whilst ensuring the design is unique. This is key to a commercially successful product and will maximise the protection of your design.

Barker Brettell can also guide you as to the best routes to commercial success; such as whether to manufacture directly or to licence your specific product or idea.
