Intellectual Property



Great companies start with great ideas. Dehns can help you from the very earliest stage, by advising how you can best protect your idea from the minute you have it! Depending on the nature of your business, patents, trade marks, designs rights and/or copyright may be applicable. We can advise on all of these and our Oxford office specialises in helping SMEs, start-ups and spin-outs.


Intellectual Property Office

Every business will open Intellectual Property – the name you trade under, the look or function of products you make or use, even the brochures you create to promote your business. All these elements can be protected if they are important to your business and if you manage them correctly they can provide competitive advantage. The Intellectual Property Office can help you understand how patents, trade marks, designs and copyright can prove an asset to your business.
