Be it your manufacturing process or your product formula, intellectual property protection is critical to the success of your company

Should your intellectual property (IP) fall into the wrong hands, the economic advantage you have over your competitors is lost; the lifeblood that fuels innovation is compromised and your position in the market undermined. At 360 Business Law, we work with companies across a wealth of industries to identify risk and implement the necessary measures to keep your IP guarded.

From intellectual property audits, to assessing the risk landscape, to strategies for protection including patents, trademarks and copyrights, you can count on our dedicated team to strengthen the security of your trade secrets and represent your interests in the event of IP theft.


Assignment of Intellectual Property Rights

The transfer or ‘assignment’ of intellectual property rights is a process whereby the owner of the IP rights transfers all or part of their rights to another party upon the payment of royalties. Known for our attention-to-detail and vast experience in the field of IP, our lawyers can assist in the transfer of IP rights through drafting and negotiation whether as a standalone assignment as part of a larger corporate deal.

Audits of Intellectual Property Rights

We work with clients in sectors such as IT and telecommunications to conduct a full review of their IP assets, IP related agreements, policies and procedures and related risks. Upon completion of an IP audit, our specialist lawyers will implement best practices for IP asset management.


From your logo to your strapline, your company’s branding is uniquely yours – it is inextricably bound with your reputation and can be seen as a signpost for trust. Protecting this key element of your intellectual property is essential in staking out your spot in the market and preventing competitors from encroaching on your territory. As your dedicated IP lawyers, we can advise on the best methods for protecting your brand and assist with licensing issues, contracts and assignments.
