Intellectual property

Coming up with ground-breaking ideas is rarely the result of a ‘eureka’ moment. It’s more likely to be through a sustained process of innovation, determination and investment.

Protecting your ideas commercially can be just as challenging, demanding a different form of intellectual agility. How do you protect your intellectual assets effectively, while still giving yourself enough flexibility to develop and bring them to market?
