Intellectual Property Services

Lane Neave’s experienced intellectual property (‘IP’) team can help you to harness the commercial potential of your original ideas and extract value from your creative endeavours.

IP is a blanket term used to describe intangible assets that derive from original ideas. Brands, products, processes and designs are all forms of IP.

Every business creates and uses IP and our team understand how precious it is to your business; regardless of whether you’re an individual entrepreneur, small business owner or large multi-national. By proactively managing IP, businesses can protect and enhance the value of their intangible asset base.

We are renowned for delivering pragmatic, common sense advice on comprehensive range of IP services, including:

Creation of IP – Identifying and managing the creation of IP is the first step towards building a valuable IP portfolio

Protection of IP – Obtaining legal protection for any original products, processes and concepts, together with its goodwill and reputation, is a core component of a successful commercial growth strategy

Commercialisation of IP – Through licensing, franchising and sale of IP ownership rights, businesses can create new revenue streams and extract maximum value from their IP

Enforcement of IP Rights – To get the best out of IP protection, it is important for businesses to act swiftly and decisively in infringement matters and, if necessary, defend their IP rights through legal action
