Startups

Working with inspired startups and their state of the art technology brings out the best in our experts. The joy of learning about a new technology or brand identity and shaping the future of a start-up company in collaboration with the client is a great motivating factor in our work.

We help entrepreneurs scout and evaluate the market to certify that competitors have not already patented a similar product or technology. Having confirmed the patentability of the technology, we help draft and prosecute patent applications to protect the rights of our clients.

In addition, we help startups choose and register their business name and raise their awareness of the importance of a trademark strategy. Naming one’s business requires a lot of reflection, technical insight and legal considerations. Done correctly, a strategy and an effective business name will most likely prove to be your most powerful branding tool.

We understand that intellectual property rights may be difficult to comprehend. When advising entrepreneurs and startups, it is our clients’ passion, creativity and ambitions that facilitate fruitful collaboration, not their knowledge of IPR matters.

We meet all our clients at their level of expertise and join the innovative out of the box thinking to come up with the best solution for each individual client.

Ultimately, we thrive on helping talented entrepreneurs turn their startup company into a competitive and successful business by securing their rights at an early stage. You can read stories about IP consulting for startups clients such as Aguardio, Ecobotix & Kitemill below.
