Patents and other IP (intellectual property (IP) rights are vital assets which need to be protected, says Northern Manufacturing exhibitor Marks & Clerk. The firms says that to make the most of these rights, a business should follow a carefully planned strategy ensuring that new ideas are identified early on, and that the protection obtained is in tune with the organisation’s commercial objectives.
The firm will be showcasing its services at the show on stand D31, where it will be launching its new Brand Protection Strategy Service. For a special one-off fee of £1,000, plus VAT to start-ups and SME, the firm’s team of specialists will work with you to investigate any existing, brand-related IP you may have and develop a comprehensive report to help you establish a robust brand protection strategy for your business.

There’s also a prize draw to win a “His and Her Hamper” for two courtesy, of Hotel Chocolat.
