Intellectual property rights
Your ideas and your products give you the cutting edge. If they are misused or appropriated by a third party, it can be extremely costly to your business. As intellectual property lawyers, we can put protection and contracts in place to help you safeguard what matters.
We can work closely with you on all areas of employment law throughout the lifecycle of your business, including finding and retaining the right people, protecting your business against every eventuality, guiding you through when an employment relationship breaks down and navigating the UK’s fast-changing immigration laws.
Data protection and information governance
Information and data are vital for your business. But one false move and you could find your business facing legal disputes and bad publicity. We can help you ensure that you are adhering to the very latest data protection legislation.
Disputes are stressful and can become costly. We can find workable solutions to minimise the impact on you and your business through proactive intervention, including negotiation, mediation and court action if needed.
We are particularly aware of the special requirements of smaller businesses. We can provide tailored packages of services to enable you to budget and keep control of costs, while still having access to expertise covering all aspects of business.
