Start-up companies face a long road in developing an idea, bringing it to market, and eventually turning a profit. We appreciate the unique problems faced by start-ups, and are experienced in using strategies such as the filing of provisional and patent cooperation treaty (PCT) applications to defer patent costs as long as possible.

From the initial stages of trying to define a comprehensive IP strategy for the company, through to securing those rights and ensuring that you are able to use them, our lawyers have experience in assisting clients navigate the path required to evaluate and protect their intellectual property. Start-up companies may be interested in our New Invention Start-up Package (link required), which can allow them to prepare a road map for developing and protecting their intellectual property for a fixed fee.
