Commercial Agreements & Intellectual Property
Protecting Your Business
Are the terms on which you trade with others clear and written down somewhere? No? You are not alone. Many start out trading with others without having thought about what might happen if things go wrong. No matter how happy the relationship now, it might not always be that way, and the result can be a costly and time consuming legal battle.
Does your business have a unique name or logo essential to preserving its identity and importantly your value? Joe Middleton has considerable experience in advising clients on the protection of your intellectual property rights and assets that you have worked so hard to create and preserve.
We have a wealth of experience in drafting commercial agreements of all kinds, from joint venture agreements to software and maintenance and licensing agreements, all carefully drafted to meet the individual needs of our clients. We understand you are busy and if you are local will come to you in order to get to know you and your situation in detail. By understanding your trading arrangements, we can then draft an agreement which works for you in the circumstances, by identifying and neutralising risks. This will ensure that the rights and responsibilities of the parties are clear for all to see and will allow you to carry on with running your business, with confidence.
Naturally, we will help you negotiate with others and will help you to get the best out of the agreement, by advising you on when you should take action and how. Our qualified and experienced solicitors Joe Middleton, Chris Biggs or Graeme Parker will always be on hand to deal with any queries you may have.
