Passionate about
your intellectual

New to IP

Whether you are running your own business, or have a unique idea that no-one else has thought of, you should be aware of the significance intellectual property (patents, trade marks, designs and copyright) can mean to your success (or failure!).

Statistics show that up to 80% of a company’s market value is based on intellectual property and intangible assets, as opposed to its capital assets.

Intellectual property can be found in all businesses from your trading name to your products and processes.

Effective use of intellectual property can protect your business as it grows. Ineffective consideration of intellectual property may leave your business unprotected. Swindell & Pearson Ltd has been representing the intellectual property interests of local, national and international clients as well as individuals since 1878. We pride ourselves on providing high quality intellectual property solutions which enhance our clients’ long-term performance.

To try to make the world of intellectual property less daunting, we have produced an information pack which is designed to explain in more detail the areas of patents, trade marks, designs and copyright.
